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.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Elberta Peach Tree.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
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.
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.
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.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
