Peach Trees - Contender #5 Pot
Contender peach, a cold tolerant variety, provides a crop of big yellow fruit just when other peach trees are slowing down. The skin is a red-orange color while the flesh is sweet and yellow. The flesh of the peach is firm and resists browning, and the freestone pit removes easily. Tolerant of late-spring frost, Contender's a good choice in growing zones where other peaches falter. Contender is self pollinating. The fruit ripens in mid to late August. Requires 1050 chill hours. At maturity, the Contender is approximately 10-15 feet in height and width.
USDA ZONES: Zone 4, Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8
