Encore Peach Tree


The Encore peach tree is an incredible freestone tree, ideal if you want a firm peach which ripens in the late season. Not only does the tree bear high quality fruit with a deep red blush, but it is also resistant to bacterial leaf spot. In fact, these trees are one of the many high quality trees developed by New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers University as a cross between a seedling and Autumnglo.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

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