Blushingstar® Peach Tree
Begins shipping mid-April.
A very hardy and prolific peach!
The Blushingstar® Peach tree is a descendant of a “Fayette” and “Newhaven” cross. This “star” is a late-season peach tree that bears beautiful, firm, free-stone white peaches. The flesh of these white peaches have a hint of brilliant red coloring near the pit.
Blushingstar® peaches have a unique, sweet flavor and the fruit resists browning when sliced, ideal for canning. The fruit has excellent shipping and storage qualities, making it a homesteader’s favorite!
One of heaviest producers, this easy to care for fruit tree is disease-resistant to bacterial spot. Blushingstar is a cold-hardy tree that can handle cooler climates. Plant this late-season peach and you’ll soon be harvesting your own fruit that ripens in August!

Size & Spacing
This variety is self pollinating.
In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You’ll get fruit with only one plant!
How do I find my Hardiness Zone?
Canada’s Plant Hardiness Zones will tell you which plants will do well in your particular climate. Each zone is determined by the lowest average winter temperature recorded in a given area. Hardiness Zone information is included on all tree and plant product pages, so you know instantly whether a certain plant is likely to succeed where you live.

By its 3rd spring, my dwarf blushingstar as reached almost 8′ and is loaded with blossoms. This tree looks fantastic in the landscaping even without the bonus of a fruit crop. I was skeptical of bare root trees, but the packaging and shipping by Stark got a great looking tree to me that took off immediately once planted in my yard.

The were growing great and would have had fruit this year I believe… My uncle ran them over with his bobcat while taking down pine trees this winter… I have bought more trees since then and will buy more again. Stark’s is #1 in my book for bare root trees.

I have problem eating grocery peaches due to allergy, but this one from Stark-bros is fabulous. Placed some other peach trees from Starkbros after tasting this one.

This peach is doing well. I have not yet received fruit no would I expect it at this point. The tree is only 2 years old. IT has survived and thrived.

My supreme Blushingstar Peach tress is growing and doing well In Oakdale, MN. I am pleased with quality of the products from this company.

Peach tree lasted about 4 months and died. Despite adequate watering, fertilizing and overall care, the tree leafed out and then died.

We haven’t had any fruit yet due to cold winters and find Blushingstar to less fruit- bud-hardy than Contender, Intrepid, Reliance (best bud hardiness), July Elberta, or 4th of July. Our peaches are just starting to bloom (May 12) and I do see a couple of flower buds coming on Blushingstar (we have two of them). Coldest temperature that I saw was about minus 13 *F.
