Prunus persica 'Indian Free'

Indian Free is an improved, freestone sport of Indian Blood, which is one of the all-time, highest-rated fruits at taste tests. Indian Blood was an heirloom variety grown at Monticello by Thomas Jefferson, who prized it for its rich color, flavor and size. It's hard to improve on historically great, but with Indian Free, the proof is in the peach!

Naturally resistant to peach leaf curl, the tree produces heavy crops of large, aromatic, freestone peaches that have dark red skin and white flesh marbled with crimson stripes. When fully ripe in mid-to-late season, the rich, sweet, distinctive flavor is excellent both eaten fresh and used in preserves, chutneys and fruit leathers.

Plant another peach or nectarine as a pollinator.

Ask a Question
  • Can I use a Black Boy peach as a pollinator for the Indian Free peach even though the Black Boy peach tends to bloom later in the season?

    Yes, they are compatible.

  • Can I use a different peach variety as pollinator, like a frost peach?

    Yes absolutely!

  • What root stock is the dwarf Indian Free grafted to? St. Julien, at an average of 15', is not what I would consider dwarf so am hoping it is grafted to some other rootstock.

    It will be either St. Julian or Marianna 2624 (which will be slightly larger at maturity than St. Julian).

  • How close or far away should the second peach tree be planted to act as a pollinator?

    Within 300 feet and in line of sight for pollinators to find it.

Hopefully worth the wait

It took almost an year to receive this sought after peach tree after ordering. When finally arrived as bare root, it looked like a nice dwarf tree with lot of branching already and planted it as soon as I received. I felt it was already late for planting in my area as all my other stone fruit trees were already flowering. It is in the ground and yet to show any signs of life. Keeping my fingers crossed as it took a long wait to get it shipped.

Best peaches ever!

We bought an Indian Free peach tree from Raintree last year, this was the first year it blossomed, early and sustained. Plenty of fruit, but July and August came and went, and they stayed small and hard.


Second week of September, and the first fell off. Cut it open, and it was amazing. Dark red juice, the center white, deep red under the skin, not hard at all, and flavor out of this world.

Tree is happy without any disease, and that in Seattle with its very wet winter of 2020/21. Could not be happier and are glad we drove down to Raintree for this peach (and for two Persimmon trees (Kaki).

My tree showed and looks absolutely amazing. It has been in the ground a couple of weeks and is setting blooms on now with some leafs coming on as well. Thanks again this is truly amazing looking tree.
