Peach Trees - IntrepidPrunus persica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4-8
The perfect cobbler peach. The sweet, yellow-fleshed fruit from this tree is a great choice for baking as well as fresh-eating, canning, and freezing. An outstanding cold-climate peach, Intrepid blooms late so that it avoids most frosts. Additionally, it's flower buds will survive freezing temperatures even at full or half bloom. The tree is cold hardy to -20° F, and it is highly resistant to bacterial leaf spot. Growers should note the long chill hour requirement. Intrepid was developed at the Sandhills Research Station in NC. It was crossed in 1987 and selected in 1990. Intrepid is red-skinned and is considered an improved variety of Reliance. It's texture of the flesh and flavor is improved and has an average fruit size in good conditions of about 2.5 inches. This peach is fully freestone and it makes a great canner. Ripens in July. Self-pollinating.
USDA ZONES: Zone 4, 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.
Very surprise how great it came pack so secure in shipping box and very leaved out I am thinking of ordering more fruit trees from plant me green would surgest anyone to consider this
The Intrepid Peach tree was well packaged and arrived in good condition. The lower 6-8inches looked brown like bark, the rest of the stem was green.
I planted the tree immediately upon receipt, following the suggested planting instructions. I watered it thoroughly every day. It wilted almost immediately, and never recovered. After three days, all the leaves were brown.
Can I get a replacement?
They were extremely unhealthy looking when I received them. 2 of them seem to be recovering. Time will tell if those make it
This time of year, the bugs love to eat on our peach tree leaves. Unfortunately, the solution is for us to constantly spray our trees, which we'd rather not do. If you think you've received a diseased tree, please reach out to customer service and we will gladly resolve the issue.
