PF 5D Big Peach on Nemaguard (Spring 2025)

You are viewing a tree that will ship in Spring 2025. You can also find trees for Spring 2024.

An early peach with great flavor.

An early-season, yellow-fleshed peach developed by Paul Friday in Coloma, Michigan (hence the PF in the variety name), PF 5D Big ripens 24 days before Redhaven. The fruit is about 80% red, a good size, and has excellent flavor for an early peach (10-11 °Brix). It should be noted that the fruit is semi-freestone, not fully freestone. The tree is hardy, resistant to bacterial spot, and minimal cases of split pits have been observed in trials. This peach is self-fertile and a second variety is not needed for pollination.
