Gardeners' Notes:

This tree is very productive with fruits that are semiclingstone to freestone. Fruits are medium sized. Moderately resistant to Bacterial leaf spot. This cultivar is a sport of Redhaven.

Newly planted fruit trees should be watered once a week during the growing season(Spring - Fall). They may require more frequent watering during very hot periods.

Trees sometimes will set more fruit than it is capable of successfully carrying to maturity. Branches may break and the fruits typically have poor color and taste. In order to rectify this situation, excess fruits must be removed or thinned. Hand-thin the tree about 4 weeks after full bloom.
