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. Natural Resources Canada provides helpful options to find your zone:

I am very sorry to say with all the care I took of this peach tree during the winter months, my tree did not survive. Not sure what to do now…
Helmut A –
Not so sure what I got here. I have two branches of a tree coming out. One branch has maroon colored leaves and the other branch has green leaves.
Daniel Tuft –
No flowers yet, but trees seem to be healthy. I assume yield in year two or three.
Peggy Beckel –
love peaches fast growing trees will do business with Start Brother again.
Georgia Larson –
Lost the top branches but lower ones are coming on strong with big green leaves. I,m in zone 4-5 with 50 degree temperature swings in spring and fall. Paint your trunks white if you want them to survive!
Ellizabeth Noble –
I would recommend buying this peach tree. I had no problem with it being shipped bare root.
Laszlo Boros –
I was happy to receive this peach. It did arrived in good condition. After carefulplanting it started to show some small leaves. Unfortunately 3-4 weeks later itwithered and dried up. I could not to do anything about it. I know it was not about the lack of care, it just happens sometime. So I don’t have this promising plant anymore.
Zachary Elizondo –
I tried every trick in the book including mounting a 7 foot unbrella to shade the tree but the Arizona sun and heat were just too much for this variety.I love white peaches but I’ll just have to buy store bought for my peach fix!
Kevin Hull –
I live in a zone 4 climate where it often gets -15 F and sometimes to -25. It grew slowly the first summer but has really taken off this year and looking great.

I planted last July and it’s now mid-June. I live in Wisconsin (central) and it’s got very vigorous growth. I have pruned it already to 4 main branches, and I’ll probably take out one more next winter. Nice bushy leafy branches. Deer have so far left it alone. I will expect it to set fruit next season depending on frost.
