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!

    My Blushingstar has taken off after being in my soil for 1 previous year. Colorado has erratic weather so extra water may be required. It looks great and has 2 nice peaches on the limbs already. Impressive…

    The middle of the tree died and is growing up from the lower end- not happy

  3. Peggy Carda

    The young trees are blooming this spring for the first time after only 2 years in the ground. looking forward to seeing if the produce fruit.

    Plant was extremely small when it arrived, and growth has been extremely slow. I put in an orchard of these from another grower and the tree was extremely vigorous. I am thinking of pulling it out and replanting. Other trees in same area doing well so do not think problem is location. Have also fertilized regularly with your tree fertilizer.

    I bought the Blushingstar peach tree last may for $96.29. It grew fine the first year, but didn’t increase in height. This year, the stock is still alive, but the tree dead.

    I’ve had some difficulty with this one. It’s 2021, and I planted this in 2014 (fall). I did get fruit for the last few years, but the fruit never got bigger than golf ball size. Yes, I removed a lot of the fruit. I thought I pruned it right and fertilized… I never could figure it out. This year I said forget it. I left the dang tree alone. Ok, that was a mistake too. The fruit did grow a bit bigger, but not that much bigger than a golf ball; however, I lost a bunch of branches due to weight. My peaches never really got the deep pinkish color like these. The flavor was good, but again, they were so small. I do wonder if it’s because I didn’t have another peach tree nearby. I did, but the 2nd year of planting the rabbits ate it and killed it. I will prune this one heavily in February, but I probably won’t live at this house to see if it helps get the fruit to grow to a normal size.

    I have had the tree for about a year. It has shown some nice growth.The trees are pretty small (~1.5′), but they survived the MN winter well and are doing well with the hot summer.Excited for when they are large enough to bare fruit!

  8. Paul Myerberg

    Excellent, fast grower. One year later it bore fruit. Now, if I can just figure out how to organically control the bugs that demand their share…

  9. Caroline Abbott

    This is the first year our little dwarf tree bore, and we were very impressed. It held its fruit close to it, so it didn’t stress its branches. The white fleshed peaches were sweet and nice. Everyone commented on how the tiny tree was loaded with full sized beautiful fruit.

    This tree is growing well, but hasn’t produced any fruit yet.
