    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    These trees are originally grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

    Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

    If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing. 

    These will be the easiest trees you have every planted!  Simply dig your hole, place the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole.  That’s it!

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.

I ordered two peach trees in March 2010, planted them April 4th in my large yard and my wife called me on the 10th of April to tell me that both trees already have about 20 peaches on them! Fast growing trees nursery does a great job with their trees in shipping and condition. Ive ordered many more trees and plants that have fruit and theyre all doing GREAT! Thank You

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.

Red Haven and Elberta Peach Trees arrived in great condition with minimal stress. Watered them well and left in a bright but shady location for 3 days before planting in the ground. They are doing fantastic, showing no signs of stress and putting on a new leaf after only 10 days

I received my peach trees today. They arrived in a HUGE box, carefully packed, with nice damp roots. They are AT LEAST 7 feet tall - NOT including the roots. I am very pleased so far. I will update my review later in the spring to let everyone know how they are doing

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.

Purchased Dwarf Elberta Peach Tree last year but this spring dead as a door nail. Came as bare root. Very disappointed at the price paid. Apparently not meant for northern Buffalo climate although apple tree purchased is blooming and thriving.

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

A shopper on Jun 23, 2014

Nancy C on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Zone 9 gets a little too hot for the Elberta Peach Tree.
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.

Does a shoot from a peach tree give fruit?
Lauro M on Jun 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A shoot could produce fruit, but it's most likely a sucker that popped up from the roots. Suckers steal nutrients from the tree and need to be removed.
A shopper on Oct 18, 2014

beerbelly on Jul 10, 2015
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 !

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.
I note that you recommend buying the Elberta Peach Trees in pairs so that they can pollinate each other. You also mention cross-pollinating with the Red Haven Peach Tree. Does this mean that I should buy 2 Elbertas and one Red Haven or 2 Elbertas and 2 Red Havens?
Marla H on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can cross pollinate with the same type or an Elberta and a Red Haven. This is not the case with all fruit, but with peaches it works well.

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.
