Contender Peach

Late. NCT 544 (Winblo x complex parentage of North Carolina selections) DJ Werner, JR Ballington and DF Ritchie intro, Ag Exp Stn, Raleigh, North Carolina, 1988.

A fairly new high-quality hardy variety worth trialing in the North. Large round bright red and yellow freestone fruit with a slightly raised suture. Firm melting aromatic yellow flesh.

Growth habit similar to Red Haven, but fruit ripens 3 weeks later. Resistant to leaf spot. Because it blooms quite late, it might escape late spring frosts. Z4/5. (3-6' bare-root trees)
