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.





Elberta Peach Tree Pollination

Elberta Peach Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Elberta Peach Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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

I have 2 dwarf Elberta trees and each have over 50 peaches on them. I am absolutely sold on this tree.

We love our 2 dwarf alberta peach trees. They flowered and produced 3 peaches the first growing season. Luv em.
January 1, 2013
Great first year! Our Peach Tree is over 8 feet tall now, and we got about a dozen peaches the first spring, when the tree was still under 6 feet tall

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

very pricy
the tree I bought from fastgrowingtree.com is grafted, supposed to be better, total cost $99 including shipping.

Local HomeDepot sells for $29.95, bigger and taller, maybe a seed grown tree.

I can not tell the difference, I went to buy a couple more peach trees at HomeDepot. Very good price and tree

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.

Planting & Care

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.

A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can if you would like, however, they do prefer to be planted in the ground.
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.

A shopper on Jul 25, 2014

I have room for 2 trees If I get an Elberta, should I add another Elberta or a Contender or Harvester for maximum season and cross pollination?
Greg B on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on where you live. Contender does better in the cooler climates and Harvester works in the warmer climates. I have a Reliance and an Elberta here in zone 5. This is the 2nd year my 4 to 5 foot Elberta has been in the ground. I had 24 blossoms on it this spring and it has produced 21 large, viable peaches. The reason I have a Reliance is because that was the only decent peach tree I could get in my area 4 years ago and the fruit is very good. Hope this helps.

I live in Charlotte. When is the best time of the year to plant a peach tree? Also, I thought these were self pollinating? Thanks.
Joe M on Jun 1, 2016
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. :)

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 !

richie on Jul 2, 2015
