It's hard to beat a fresh juicy peach!

I will hopefully be harvesting my first crop of Halehaven and Elberta peaches this year and also just planted Reliance and Contender varieties this year!

What is your favorite peach variety and why?!

Favorite varieties based on the comments...

-Redhaven- good flavor?, high yields?

I've heard Redhaven is a top tasting variety!

I also heard it has large yields, has that been the case for you if you're growing it?

It looks like Redhaven may have pretty high chill hours and blooms late to avoid late frosts, which is always nice in our area!

The tree is also supposedly a vigorous grower with a natural spreading branch structure, with firm fruit good for storage but creamy flesh when ripe for fresh eating.

No wander this is such a popular peach! I'm going to have to get one soon!

Is anyone growing this?!
