 About Contender Peaches Minimize
Contender is very cold hardy and is tolerant to late spring frosts. The skin is a red-orange color while the flesh is sweet and yellow. Contender is self-pollinating, so planting another peach tree is not required. In addition to their fruit, peach trees have beautiful springtime flowering and attractive leaves making them tree in any landscape.
