Each double flower is a picture of frilly, floral perfection that maintains its dazzling, bright red display for several weeks (and certainly earns its name of "Red Baron").

For its second act, Red Baron provides some of the best Peaches you'll ever taste! The 3-inch, firm globes of juicy peaches are so prolific that you'll need to thin a few out each year. Each freestone peach is brilliantly dressed in a sunny, yellow skin with splashes of red.

The flesh is yellow and sweet with slight tart overtones for a deep, rich flavor you'll come to crave. In fact, your Red Baron Peach tree scores high on taste tests for its superior flavor. It's an August harvest you'll never forget!

How to Use Red Baron Peach Tree In The Landscape

Red Baron Peach is a fruit-bearing ornamental tree with an exceptionally lovely spring display. Plant one in a sunny spot in your front yard where you can share its remarkable blooms with your neighbors, and watch every step of the development of its delicious fruit.

An eye-catching display such as this deserves to be front and center in your front yard and entry plantings. With a size that is easy to manage and fit into any sized garden, ditch that one-and-done flowering tree with a beautiful 3 season ornamental instead!

Dual-purpose gardening and Edible landscaping are all the rage, so why not get more from your garden than looks? The handsome green foliage provides great shade throughout the summer, and are a lovely backdrop to the golden gems to follow.

Anchor foundation plantings, or use as a specimen in the front garden, this tree will easily stand out! Or plant as shade and a focal point among your other garden beds, just be sure you can still reach your harvest!

Easily tuck into an existing back garden or small home orchard, or allow this tree to shade your seating areas and patios, close enough where you can reach out and smell the blossoms, or pluck a delicious snack!

#ProPlantTips For Care

The Red Baron Peach Tree is produces at an early age so you won't have to wait long to see results, and it's relatively easy to care for. It’s noted for doing well in the climates of Southern California and Texas.

It doesn't mind a little pruning, so it can be trimmed to a smaller size if you should prefer to keep it more petite for easy picking. It's self-fruitful so you won't have to plant a pollinator to ensure a harvest!

For more pruning tips and Peach Tree Care, head over to our Garden Blog! Since birds and squirrels love these peaches as much as you will, try to maintain a smaller form to easily cover your crop with netting so they won’t make off with your entire harvest!

Fruit trees require full sun ideally, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. Plant in USDA growing zones 5 through 9 in good draining soil. The wide adaptability of this classic peach is another fine quality. Any well-drained soil that’s been enriched with lots of organic material and manure or compost is great.

Water regularly to ensure a healthy tree and juicy harvest. While somewhat drought tolerant once established, it’s best to protect your investment with a regular watering schedule. Keep young trees especially well-watered and do not allow them to dry out.

For best results, fertilize your tree regularly with Dr. Earth Fruit Tree Fertilizer or a good organic, slow-release fertilizer. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

Owning a Red Baron Peach Tree is a terrific investment in a tree that acts like two trees in one. In spring it's a spectacular ornamental, and in fall it becomes an exceptional fruit tree with outstanding, healthy fruit. No matter how you look at it, Red Baron is the peach tree to have in your yard this year!

Peach Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Red Baron Peach Trees to bear fruit?

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you’ll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees! Expect a young peach tree to begin fruiting by the 3rd year after you plant it.

How Fast Do Red Baron Peach Trees Grow?

Be sure to plant your peach in a sunny and well-drained location. Once your Red Baron (Prunus persica 'Red Baron') has been established (after the first year), it can typically add 12-18 inches of new growth in a growing season. If your plants are adding less than that in a season, it may be worth your while to check the fertility level.

Where do Red Baron Peach Trees Grow Best?

Peach trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more.

Do You Need 2 Peach Trees to Produce Fruit?

All peach trees are self-fertile, however planting more than one peach tree that blooms at about the same time, boosts yields on both trees and extends your harvest time!

Harvest Times for Red Baron Peach Trees

Red Barons are typically ready to harvest in July to early August. Keep in mind exact harvest times are subject to change depending on the hardiness zones they’re being grown in.

Early-Season? Mid-Season? Late-Season? The terminology can be confusing for new peach tree growers. Weather, climate and your tree determine when it’s ripe.

When Should Red Baron Peach Tree be Planted?

Bareroot peach trees can be planted in spring when they are available in your area. Container-grown peach trees can be very successfully transplanted all throughout the growing season. Check for first and last frost dates for your area with your local County Extension Office.

  • Plant bareroot peach trees in the early spring.
  • Plant container-grown trees anytime the ground is not frozen by digging a hole as deep as the soil line and twice as wide.
