The Contender Peach

The Contender Peach

All Summer long, two little peaches were growing on our new Peach trees.
Yesterday was Peach picking day!
Someone ate one before it could be photographed!
So here is our other pride and joy.
Delicious!
If your looking for a Peach tree for Zone 4–put this on your list for next Spring.
They are self pollinating, grow to about 15 ft, and produce a medium to large size fruit.
Supplies are limited of this tree, so shop early.
Hoping for a bigger crop next year.

We have a Contender!

We have a Contender!

Fruit trees were a priority to plant when we first moved to our little country property nearly 6 years ago.
Apple trees were first, then came Pear trees, and last Spring we added 2 Contender Peach trees.
Planted as bare root trees, we carefully pondered their location and hoped for the best. Last Summers drought made for lots of hose dragging around the property to ensure these new trees would grow.
When Spring came and our sweet new trees blossomed we were thrilled!
This week while walking the yard and inspecting trees we spied this–A PEACH! Yes, our first peach.
Contender Peach trees are rated Zone 4-8, good for Northern growers.
Quantities are limited for these trees, so if you want one, shop early in the Spring.
They are self-polinating, and should produce a medium to large peach. Trees should grow to about 15 feet.
Funny how we all gathered around the little peach to admire it! Blog worthy my family declared!
