I learned alot!
Reviewed By: Dave Shelton (Luverne, MN)
Have a four and a five year old tree that together produced just over 330 medium to large size very juicy and tasty peaches. However, I would strongly suggest thinning the crop early as I experienced limb breakage with the weight of the heavy crop. Heck of a problem to have here in S.W. Minnesota huh. I am ordering two more trees today!

Excellent Investment
Reviewed By: Sharon (Selma, IN)
I planted this tree in 2011. In 2013 the tree had reached nine feet in height and produced three dozen delicious peaches. I had not expected it to bear so soon. I planted it in full sun with a wind break of tall shrubs to the north. Sometimes tree purchases disappoint. I'm happy to say this was not one of them. I couldn't be more satisfied.

None better
Reviewed By: Angi (Indianapolis, IN)
This is our 4th year with this tree. We got full size peaches this year and family and friends are begging me to let them buy some off of us because they were so good! But my husband won't budge as you can't buy flavor this good! Canned and Froze them, cannot believe how good they are!!

Amazing Growth - Must Prune!
Reviewed By: Mark (York, NE)
This tree was amazing, we planted it 2 years ago and in only 2 years the thing had grown to over 10 or 12 feet tall from a tiny ball of roots. We had a tree full of peaches in only our 2nd year in York, NE but we just came home to a horrible sight. Our peach tree had literally split straight down the middle all the way to the ground. This was in no way a fault of the tree as much as it was we were new to peach trees and did not realize how important it is to prune some of the peaches from the tree in order to keep it from killing it's self. We had so many peaches on the tree the branches started bending down and touching the ground all around the tree like a willow tree because of the weight of the peaches. I would still recommend this tree to anyone who lives in a cold area like we do. We will be buying another soon!

Reviewed By: Dawn (Pella, IA)
I can't say enough about these trees! My seven year old tree is full of fruit! The tree I ordered last year has put out 8 peaches already! Wonderful tasting, sweet, and juicy! We love them for fresh eating, cobblers and canning! Love peaches? cold climate? Plant Contender!

Best Peach Tree Ever!
Reviewed By: Leslie (Mapleton, UT)
This little tree is amazing. I have gotten peaches every year since the year after I planted it. Utah is notorious for unstable spring weather. This has not affected my tree at all. The peaches taste amazing and each year they have gotten bigger. I am in love with this tree!
