Contender Peach Tree

Late Frosts No Problem!

  • Cold hardy and tolerates late spring frosts
  • Ideal for Northern growers
  • Sweet, extra-juicy freestone fruit
  • Self-pollinating
  • Available in Reachables size
Introduced in 1988, Contender Peach Tree quickly became a favorite among northern gardeners. The tree exhibits excellent cold hardiness and tolerance to late-spring frosts. Its fruits are wonderful too. Contender consistently produces high yields of medium-to-large freestone fruits. Blushed with red skins, the fruits have a marvelously melting, sweet and juicy yellow flesh. They're excellent for eating fresh as well as making into jams, baking into pies and desserts as well as canning. Requires 1,000 chill hours. Fruits ripen in mid August. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8.

Why buy a Deluxe Contender Peach package?

Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit--How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.
