Your Red Baron Peach is like two trees in one! Putting on such a show, you'll come to treasure this tree year after year!
For its first act, your Red Baron Peach Tree (Prunus 'Red Baron') 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!
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!
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!

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!
