Coralstar is an attractive large yellow-fleshed mid-season peach, named for coral-red skin color. If well-thinned the peaches can be up to 3" across.

The peaches will stay on the tree, ripening over a period, which is ideal for the backyard grower.

Unusually, cut slices do not turn brown - useful for fruit salads and cookery.

How to grow

Coralstar is a high-chill variety and tends to bloom later in the spring, hopefully avoiding early frosts.

As with many peaches, if there is a heavy fruit set after the spring blossom it is important to thin the new fruitlets heavily.
