growing well
Reviewed By: Kristy (Rogers, AR)
I bought and planted our tree in May and it looked like a stick with roots. It has been fun to watch it grow. Five months later, the tree is 6 feet tall and covered with leaves. I'm very happy with my purchase and look forward to peaches.

What a tree!
Reviewed By: Linda Newton (Hawesville, KY)
I ordered this peach tree on sale early in the spring, and when it arrived we were having monsoon season, so I placed it in a bucket of water in the garage until planting. This little tree had TWO blooms while in the bucket and actually developed one peach. Unfortunately, a later storm knocked it off after planting, but we were amazed at the health and productivity of this litle tree. I had never heard of a tree setting fruit the first year !

Fabulous!
Reviewed By: Denise (Shakopee, MN)
I bought this tree years ago and already have 5 peaches this year! They smell amazing and I think the first will be ready to eat in a few days. No one in MN can believe that I have peaches growing in my yard...one of my neighbors even thought I had put fake ones on the tree! Ther are huge and gorgeous and we are SO pleased with this tree, I just can't say enough good things about it.

Hardy AND tasty
Reviewed By: VO Reason (Rochester, NY)
I bought this peach as an insurance policy, thinking that if my other peaches got hit by the weather, at least I would have some peaches. As it turns out, this peach not only is hardy, I like the taste as well as any of the other peaches in my orchard, and it seems to suffer less from insect and disease problems.

Wonderful !
Reviewed By: Mary O. (Winona, MN)
My Reliance peach tree is about 10 years old, and while I get a decent crop every year, this year is outstanding! I have more than enough for our family, many to give away and even more to can. A warm just picked sun-ripened peach is truly a delight !

Rely on 'Reliance'
Reviewed By: Mark G. (Free Soil, MI)
"I have planted as many as 10 different varieties of ""cold-hardy"" peach trees in my hobby orchard here in NW lower MI, but none have performed as well as the 'Reliance'. Even my newest 2 yr plantings are bearing up to 30 peaches this spring. Incredible!"

Unstopable!
Reviewed By: Suzan Lamb (Animas, New Mexico)
I chose this variety as we occasionally have late frosts. We planted it in the spring of '05, spring of '06 it blossomed and bore fruit. Most amazing of all was the ability of the blossoms to withstand our gale force spring winds, it was as though they were held on with super glue! Much potential fruit is lost every year due to frosts and winds but our two Reliance peach trees breezed through with out missing a lick! Thanks so much for this amazing tree!
