Contender Peach Tree
Cold hardy and tolerant to a late-spring frost, the Contender Peach is well suited for the north. Flush with pink spring blossoms, this very juicy freestone peach ripens in mid-August. Velvety orange and red skin with sweet, yellow flesh. Extremely tasty eating out of hand fresh from the tree!
