I have both Contender and Reliance peach here in zone 4/5 Colorado.  I have 
had them in for 3-4 years and have survived our winters OK, but, as always, 
fruiting depends on spring frosts.  I don't know what rootstock they are on.

I budded Reliance on p. americana which hasn't done well at all.  It makes a 
great growth of 3-4' each year, but except for a few buds, dies back 
completely each winter.
