Wisconsin Peaches

Contender - Freestone Variety

A hybrid of ‘Summercrest’ x ‘Redhaven’, released in 1987 by the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station. It is one of the heartiest of all the peaches and is productive well into Zone 4. Contender is mostly yellow with a slight red undertone on large peaches 2.5-3 inches in diameter. Contender is an extremely sweet peach and Wisconsin soils add just a touch of unique “tang” that you can also taste in local crops like potatoes.

Available in mid August.
