Prunus persica, commonly referred to as peach, is a type of stonefruit originally native to central and eastern Asia set apart from nectarines by the presence of its telltale peachfuzz, which covers the skin of its fruits. The 'Redskin' cultivar is named for its yellow and deep-red blushed fruit, and is highly regarded for its profuse harvests and fruit flesh that is juicy, sweet, and firm but with plenty of give.

Producing glossy green foliage followed by beautiful pink flowers in the early spring, 'Redskin' is a fast-growing cultivar up to 15-25' tall. 'Redskin' is a freestone peach cultivar, and is self-pollinating and therefore able to produce fruit by itself, though pollination partners may increase harvest size.Some peach cultivars may take many years to begin producing fruit, but 'Redskin' begins fruiting only two to three years after planting.

Successful flower set for this cultivar requires 750 chill hours of exposure to 45°F or cooler temperatures throughout the winter. Flower set, followed by pollination, results in mature fruit set by mid season for peaches, typically late June through August. 'Redskin' peaches are edible and delicious for people, and also attract a number of bees, insects, birds, and wildlife who feed on fallen fruits.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
