Harvester PeachPrunus persica 'Harvester'

As its name suggests, this is a high-producing peach tree with fruit that is juicy and delicious right off the tree. It is very popular with commercial growers, but homeowners love this variety as well because it is self-pollinating, meaning you don’t need a large plot to grow peaches right in your backyard.

  • Ripens late June to July
  • Blooms pink and white in the spring
  • Is self-pollinating
  • Will be delivered at a height of 3'–4'
