Redhaven Peach Tree Overview
The Redhaven peach tree has become one of the world’s most commonly planted peach tree. Not only is it easy to grow, but it is also frost hardy. Additionally the fruit is large and delicious. Although it has good resistance to bacterial leaf spot, it is susceptible to peach leaf curl, brown rot, oriental fruit moth and peach twig borer. The Redhaven peach tree was developed in the late 1930’s in southwest Michigan. We grow this peach tree on Bailey rootstock, one of the regular peach tree rootstocks.
