Most desirable yellow freestone. This vigorous, hardy, productive, dependable tree is noted for its high-yielding properties. Tough skin stands up to handling and prevents bruising. One of the finest for home use or roadside markets, excellent for canning and freezing. Ripens around mid-June to mid-July, two weeks before Elberta. Fruit trees need a minimum of 6-8 hours sunlight daily, and need water. They are not drought tolerant. Hale Haven is a hybrid of J. H. Hale X South Haven. While peach trees are self-fertile and don't require another tree to produce fruit, planting two trees is recommended for a better crop (it will still require insects to pollinate its own flowers). (Zones 5-8)
Dwarf trees should be staked to ensure tree's ability to bear weight of fruit and protect against leaning.

The benefits of bare-root trees
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
