Peach Trees - RedskinPrunus persica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-8
The Redskin peach is the most adaptable of all fruit trees for home gardens. Redskin is good for the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, central and lower Midwest. A large freestone with good red color and yellow flesh. Midseason bearing, with showy flowers. A seedling from Elberta it is a great choice for areas with unexpected late frosts because it flowers longer than other peaches and will still produce fruits. Good fresh, for canning or freezing. This popular peach yields lots of fruit with yellow flesh that is melting, but firm, and has a wonderful flavor. This selection produces freestone fruits, which means the pit falls out easily when it's cut open. There is no need to plant an additional peach variety for pollination because this tree is self-fruitful. Fruit is terrific picked straight from the tree and eaten fresh, sliced into fruit salad, or baked in pies, tarts or crisps. Great for large scale plantings. Redskin Peach tree ripens 2 days prior to the Elberta peach tree and needs 750 chill hours.
USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
