The Hale Haven is a yellow-fleshed freestone peach that can be planted in hardiness zones 5 to 8, which are temperature-dictated growing regions that cover North America. Zones 5 to 8 include Massachusetts, Tennessee, New Mexico and Iowa. Hale Haven peach trees are self-fertile, meaning that they do not need another variety of peach for pollination.
Hale Haven peach trees reach 15 to 25 feet in height. The trees spread eight to 20 feet and should be pruned annually to maintain a strong shape.
Hale Haven peaches have yellow skin with red blotches. The fruit is sweet and firm and holds up well for canning and baking.
To be productive, Hale Haven peach trees require six to eight hours of full sun per day. The trees need regular water.
Hale Haven peach trees develop pink flowers in mid spring. The blooms give way to peaches.
Hale Haven peach trees have oval-shaped green leaves that grow on either side of the stem.
Hale Haven peach trees are valued as high-yielding trees, meaning that they are more productive than other peach trees and that their fruit is of a good quality.
