Crimson Rocket

Crimson Rocket PP#15,216

This variety is an introduction from the USDA peach breeding program at Kearneysville, West Virginia. This novel variety is the first pillar tree form variety offered by Adams County Nursery. The tree architecture is very different than conventional peach trees. It is a very upright growing tree reaching 12-14 feet with a 5-6 foot spread, allowing the tree to be maintained in a confined area. The fruit is large and freestone with good eating qualities. This variety is not recommended for shipping due to lack of adequate firmness.

About Rootstock

Our peach and nectarine trees are grown on industry standard Bailey rootstock. If we need to purchase peach trees to supplement our own inventory, these trees are typically grown on Lovell rootstock. For a traditional, open center planting we recommend spacing the trees 12-14’ in row and 20’ between rows. For perpendicular V training, the recommended spacing is 6’ in row and 20’ feet between rows.
