    Product Description

    The sweet Southern taste of fresh peaches can be a reality, even in a northern garden. Contender Peach is cold hardy, and the beautiful blooms can tolerate spring frosts better, so you're much more likely to get peaches than when the average peach blossom gets hit with a surprise cold spell. These freestone peaches are delicious too. Extra juicy with melting yellow fruit, delicious for eating fresh and in a cobbler. Also, as this is part of the Reachables® line, harvest time doesn't have to be a hassle. With a more modest height, the average person can harvest the majority of the peaches without having to pull out the ladder. This variety is self-pollinating, so if your garden is small, you won't have to worry about adding multiple peach trees in to get fruit. Prunus persica 'Contender'
