Contender Peach Tree


The Contender peach tree is an ideal freestone tree if you live in a cold climate (Northern United States) and want a juicy, succulent peach. Not only does the tree bear reliably and consistently, but it is also regarded as having the tastiest fruits. In addition to eating the contender peaches fresh, you can also use them for baking and canning. Moreover, the fruits won’t go brown before their time and the occasional late spring frost won’t destroy the crop.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Our grafted/budded apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, and cherry trees are about 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. Most other trees are seedlings ranging from 18-36" tall. You know if a tree is a seedling when the rootstock selected says "Seedling".

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
