Plant type
A new hardy peach. Blooms late, ripens in late August. Sweet and extremely juicy. 

Self-fertile. Hardiness is comparable to reliance. We have seen Contender fruit in Plainfield, Calais, and Montpelier.


Peaches are marginal in much of Vermont. That said we have gotten fruit for three years in a row now. Peaches are vigorous and quick to bear but winter will eventually wreck them.

Plant in a well drained location where the soil will will be shaded from winter sun, but the top will be in the sun during the summer, often on the north side of a building works well. Cold soil in the spring can delay flowering and help protect from frost damage.

We sell the hardiest peaches we can but do not guarantee the hardiness of peach trees.
