In 1984, trees of 'Redhaven' peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] on 9 rootstocks were planted at 16 sites in North America according to guidelines established for cooperative testing by the North Central Regional Cooperative Project (NC-140). After 7 years, tree loss was greatest on 'Citation' (52%) and 'Damas 1869' (32%). Survival was greatest for trees on 'Bailey,' 'Halford' and own-rooted 'Redhaven.' Tree loss was greatest at the Ohio and Kentucky sites, due primarily to winter damage and heavy soil conditions, respectively. Trees on 'GF 677' were the most vigorous and those on 'Citation,' 'GF 655-2' and 'Damas 1869' were the least vigorous. Greatest cumulative yield was experienced on 'GF 677,' 'Halford,' 'Bailey,' 'Siberian C' and own-rooted 'Redhaven.'.
