Arapohue Red Leaf | Peach | Seedling
We now offer more and more cultivars as seedlings. We are doing this because we believe them to be a superior way to grow our genetically stable heritage varieties. Modern peaches do not grow true in the same way, and so we trial all cultivars before offering them to you. The trees are stronger and more disease resistant, but grow in size to be somewhere in between the smaller Marianna rootstock and the larger peach rootstock. We tip the central leaders in the nursery to produce a low branched tree most suitable for home gardeners.

Red skin, golden flesh and freestone with red streaks around the stone. Outstanding flavour, excellent texture and is very juicy. Red leaves on the tree. Allow 5-8m.
Given to Koanga by a woman near Ruawai, originally from elderly Dalmatian gardener. Ripe late February. We’ve been spelling this Arapahoe for years but have just been informed the area / road is Arapohue so are correcting our mistake!
