Delicious Peaches Full of Flavor

Elberta Peaches are the world's most famous peaches because of their abundance of taste, attractive color and disease resistance.


These trees give you very large peaches that are great for canning, snacking and baking.

Elberta Peach Trees are the most disease resistant peach trees available. You no longer have to worry about your tree or your peaches!

These trees are even insect resistant... meaning you can grow your peaches organically. No more spraying chemicals on your fruit!

They ripen to a deep, golden yellow with a blush of red.

Your tree has been continually pruned back to encourage more branches. This process requires us to grow your tree about a year longer than our competitors, but the difference you'll see is dramatic. The additional limbs produce significantly more fruit and produce it quicker.

We know you're impatient. That's why we only send fruit trees that are hardy, vibrant and ready to produce.

With proper care, you will be able to start picking peaches after the first season, or as soon as the first year under optimal conditions. We even give them one last pruning before shipping, at no additional cost to you. This process will also ensure that your tree is dwarf sized and the fruit is easy to harvest!

Elberta peach trees are normally planted in pairs so they can pollinate each other. This pollination causes your trees to produce more fruit! We recommend cross-pollinating your Elberta with the Red Haven Peach Tree.

Elberta Peach Trees grow rapidly, and mature quickly to a height of 15 feet. The faster they grow, the sooner they reward you with delicious fruit.


People often wonder why peach trees aren't showy and ornamental. This is because they are meant to produce peaches, not pretty leaves. If there are spots and holes in the leaves of your tree, this is normal. Rest assured, the peaches your tree produces will still be sweet, juicy and delicious.

These are healthy Elberta trees! (Zone 7 Central Virginia)
I bought my 2 wonderful Elberta peach trees before winter 2014. They arrived healthy and carefully packaged. I put them in the ground and noticed that they like being watered, they seem very happy after Irrigation. As Fall brought cooler weather, these young trees gradually discarded their leaves. We've had some Very cold nights (temps in the teens) and you'd be as surprised as I was to see these trees have been busy making new buds. I can hardly wait until spring 2015 to
arrive so I can see what happens next. All I can say is, this looks to be my best purchase of 2014.

Georgia Peach in Texas
The Elberta arrived in perfect condition, and of course it was planted the same day... it has thrived and started to put on buds and today, just as the blooms started to open, , we were hit by the worse winter ever in this Late of a February.
We will have to see what happens, and likely have some set back. It is sort of protected by the south side of the building, will just have to wait and see. I had wished that I had another, but from experience of being assigned by the military to Georgia, I know sometime they too get blasted by the same type of crazy weather. But if it was "born" in Georgia, it will be great.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Elberta Peach Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Elberta Peach Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Elberta Peach Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Elberta Peach Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Hi, how far apart when planting peach trees, I live in Warren MI 48093, can you pollinate only with another peach tree? I also like cherries, is this a good time of year to start new trees? thanks...Joe
Joe G on Apr 13, 2015
Best Answer: We recommend planting your trees within 50 feet of one another. Elberta peach trees are normally planted in pairs so they can pollinate each other. You can also cross pollinate with The Red Haven Peach Tree. Your ideal planting times for fruit trees is either in the fall 6 weeks prior to your first frost or in the Spring.

hi, how are they disease and pest resistant? are they treated in some way?
christina z on Jan 2, 2015
Best Answer: Elberta Peach trees like many hardy disease resistant trees, are hybrid trees that over time have been breed to be disease resistant. There is nothing specific that we do to this tree to make it disease resistant, it already is.

what is sap coming out of trunk ?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2014
Best Answer: Sap comes out of Peach Trees for a few different reasons. There can be too much sap for the amount of peaches on the trees so instead of going to the fruit it goes back to the roots and can ooze out of the tree. Remove extra peaches that don't look too great. The sap can also be a sign of over watering or pests.

How far apart should I plant the two trees?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2014
Best Answer: If the trees grow to 10 ft. wide, plant them about 12 ft. apart. Mine have tons of fruit and I just planted them last year, however, I didn't spray them with anything in early spring and most of the peaches have some sort of worms.... I'll know better next year.

Lauro M on Jun 20, 2014

Best Answer: Joe, I live in Illinois. I bought 2 of their Peach Trees over 2 years ago. Only one has flowered & began to produce Peach's, and it's year 2. From what I have read, fall is actually the best time to plant a tree. The ground is warm, and the beating heat is over. Other than that, my Dad always say's the best time to plant a tree is "Yesterday". As in, just get it in the ground. :)

It depends on the zone you live in. Most peaches are zoned through zone 8 but warmer than that may not get enough chill hours to set fruit. We have some for zone 8 that are delicious. The Elberta and the Contender, both are juicy and flavorful !

When to fertilize?
Inga O on Feb 8, 2016
Best Answer: Apply a nitrogen containing fertilizer such as 1 pound of 10-10-10 or its equivalent about 6 weeks after planting your Peach Tree. In the following year, add 3/4 pound of the fertilizer in the spring and another 3/4 pound the following summer. For an extra nitrogen boost, try seeding the lawn surrounding the tree with white clover or crimson clover.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
