Red Baron Peach Tree
Lovely Spring Display and Superior Fruit
Red Baron Peach is a fruit bearing tree with an exceptionally lovely spring display. Plant one in a sunny spot in your front yard where you can share its remarkable spring display with your neighbors, and watch every step of the development of its delicious fruit.
Your Red Baron Peach is like two trees in one, putting on a show you'll come to treasure year-after-year. For its first act, Red Baron Peach tree puts on a spring display like no other when April finds it awash in stunning, scarlet blossoms. 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!
The Red Baron Peach tree is fast-growing so you won't have to wait long to see results, and it's relatively easy to care for. The Red Baron Peach tree 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.
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!
