Harvester Peach Tree
Pretty as a Peach…and Tasty, Too!
The Harvester Peach tree bridges the gap between having an ornamental plant simply for show and enjoying an edible plant in your landscape. This versatile plant gives you pretty flowers, sweet peach fruits and vibrant fall leaf color -- all rolled into one tree!
Let’s Talk Peaches
It’s no coincidence that Harvester is so-named. It lives up to its reputation by yielding a bumper crop of freestone peaches on a small tree. Its mature height typically tops out between 10-15 feet, which makes harvesting the luscious fruit easier than from tall trees. Peach trees are called “self-fruitful” trees, because you don’t have to plant two or more trees for cross-pollination and fruit set. But if you have enough room in your yard, you’ll want to plant more than one tree simply to pick more fresh peaches!
Delicious, Nutritious and a Bit Indulgent
Some food that is “good for you” may not tickle your palate, but Harvester peaches are not only sweet to eat…they’re also packed with nutrition. They’re low in calories, fiber-rich and contain vitamin C. Peaches make the best cobblers, and topped with ice cream they may not be as healthy as fruit-only snacking, but they’ll surely satisfy your sweet cravings!
Already Nipped and Tucked
You may have resisted buying a peach tree ‘til now because you’re not a pruning expert. We’ve taken that concern away from you by offering trees that have already been pruned and shaped while they’re young. Your Harvester peach tree will arrive already shaped in the correct form that will produce the most fruit for you!
A Winning Combination
If you love the fruit-salad combo of peaches and blueberries, plant a Harvester peach tree with our Sweetheart and Pink Lemonade blueberry shrubs. Your landscape will come alive with this riot of color and your taste buds will thank you!
Peach Trees are for Growing Peaches, Not Pretty Leaves
This variety is a heavy producer of fruit. During the growing season, it focuses on growing as many peaches as it can. If there are spots or holes in your leaves, this is normal. Your tree is focusing its energy on producing fruit.
