Red star peach tree's

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about getting some peach tree's to start my orchard. I visited some greenhouses today and have a question on two different types of peach tree's.

 

I'm not sure if the place we stopped at knew what she was talking about. Her peach tree's are coming in today, i asked her if she had red haven peach tree's, she said no, the supplier was out of them so she is getting red star peach tree's. I asked if this was a good peach for canning, she said yes. I asked if it was a free stone peach, she didn't know. she has peach tree's that are not dwarf and not semi dwarf.

 

I stopped somewhere else. These people knew nothing. But, they had semi dwarf red haven peach tree's for $25.00. I would rather go with the red haven peaches, since I know they are good for canning and jam. But, if I can get a full size peach tree a bit cheaper and still suit the same purpose, I think I would rather do that. But, I can't find any information on Red Star peach tree's.

 

could this be a name for a few different type of peach tree's, and most importantly, could it be a free stone peach? has anyone heard of it? :misc-smiley-231:

Red Star

 

Ripens with Red Haven and looks similar to a nice Red Haven. Large, round, very beautiful peach with 80% rich red color over a subtle striped background. Very few split pits, flesh is medium-yellow with a wonderful flavor. The 2 3/4" to 3" fruit are firm but have a slight attachment to the pit. Similar To Red Haven
