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.
