This excellent cropper has very few split pits and matures between Garnet Beauty and Redhaven. It will require diligent thinning most years because of its very hardy buds and blossoms. The tree is of medium vigor, hardy, and productive with good resistance to bacterial spot and peach canker. RisingStar® is very uniform in size and coloring and matures in two to three pickings.
