Redhaven is a yellow-fleshed peach, ripening early to mid-season. It is capable of achieving very good flavours, but it needs to be in full sun.
It is popular partly because of its good flavor, but also because it has some resistance to peach-leaf curl.
Redhaven is a semi-freestone peach - the flesh comes away fairly cleanly from the stone.
Sorry we have not been able to produce any trees of this variety this season.
We may still be able to propagate it to order for you. Please contact us for more details.
Redhaven is in flowering group 3. Redhaven is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other peach trees.
Important: advice about pollination
Redhaven was developed by Stanley Johnston at the Michigan State Experiment Station in South Haven, Michigan USA, in the 1940s. It may be descended from an English variety, Hale's Early.
It is sometimes known, incorrectly, as Red Haven peach.
