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.

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.

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

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

Absolutely beautiful healthy little tree! Planted it in the early spring down here in the desert and it has already produced fruit. Unfortunately cannot say how it tasted as the birds got them all!

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.

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

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.

How cool is it to have a peach tree in your back yard?
Chrystal K on Apr 26, 2017
I like peaches, and chose this to cross pollinate my red haven peach tree. It worked well because this little wonder has 4 peaches on this year and I didn't plant till Feb 2017.

Who can live in the south and not own a peach tree? This variety looks to be strong and grows well in sand or clay.
Chanda Z on Mar 22, 2017
We are planting one Elberta Peach and one Red Haven peach tree in our front yard. We chose these because of their size and the type of fruit they produce. It was clearly stated in the information of each tree that they should be cross pollinated with the other. This was most helpful.

Matthew L on Jan 23, 2017
I have no feedback on this tree yet. It was bought as a replacement for one we bought last year that didn't make it here. Our zone or soil may be borderline for growing peaches, even with our best efforts. This one will have the advantage of having been planted with Root Rocket to stimulate root growth. We're hopeful it will survive the winter, but may wrap it to protect it a bit.

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.
I live in growing zone 9 will the Elberta peach tree grow in this area ?
Nancy C on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Zone 9 gets a little too hot for the Elberta Peach Tree.
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.
do I plant two trees when I plant? or just one
A shopper on Jun 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We planted one Elberta and one Red Haven. Weather thru us a curve and frosted when everything was blooming. We got lucky, have 3 peaches the Elberta and 9 on the New Haven. We weren't so lucky with a pear, a 4 way cherry, and some apples, not one fruit on any of them.
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.
Can elberta trees be grown in pots?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can if you would like, however, they do prefer to be planted in the ground.
How late in the Season can I plant peach trees in Illinois? Thank you.

why dont you ship to California?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately California has agricultural laws put in place that legally prevent us from shipping Elberta Peach Trees there.
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.
What month is best to plant in zone 5?
Johnny M on Dec 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's best to plant in the early spring or early fall.
are they shipped bare root ?
jim b on Jul 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If the tree is dormant they're often shipped bare root, this is healthier for the tree. Currently this tree is being shipped in a pot.
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.
Are the disease resistant due to GMO? Are they GMO? Thank you
Jeanne W on Jun 22, 2015

chappyv on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is a free stone peach
Mine produced 10-12 peaches the first year
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.
A shopper on Oct 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We live in NH and purchased an Elberta peach tree and a Red Haven peach tree last year - to our surprise we actually got about 4-5 peaches off each tree this year. The trees have grown and are doing well. We put sawdust around the base of the tree to protect it.
Will these trees take root if planted in the fall in zone 5? Thanks.
DeeDee on Aug 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these are very resiliant and hearty trees. If, like ours, your stub has just one living cell in it, it will eventually sprout velupous branches and then someday, fruit.

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. :)
We lost our peach tree in a storm, don't know what type but it was a good producer and are looking to replace it. Currently have a yellow delicious apple in the same area. looking at the Red Haven or Elberta which would be the best? Or do we need to plant in pairs
Mike S on Mar 5, 2016

lightning on Aug 18, 2015
No This tree is not certified organic. It is a variety that is insect resistant making it easier for you to grow it organically.Yes The Elberta Peach does need a companion, we recommend the Red Haven another delicious, juicy peach.You will be in peach heaven with these. If you need further assistance please contact our sales department at 1 888 504-2001. Thank you and Happy Gardening !

I live in southwest florida do you think this tree would do ok here in warmer climate?
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 !
what fertilizer do i use for the elberta peach tree ?
richie on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We bought Southern Ag Citrus Nutritional spray from Home Depot & have used that for the past 2 yrs. we've had the tree. We also put a mound of mulch we chipped around the base of the plant to protect it during the hard New England winters. All has worked well and we are seeing lots of buds this year.

If I were to plant one of these with a few blueberry and blackberry bushes will that be enough for them to pollinate or do I need to have two peach trees to do the trick?
Brooke M on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My setup is with a total of 4 peach trees. From what I have read more peach trees are better for pollination purposes. Two of mine peach tree are showing many peaches this season.
I have an Elberta and red haven that I planted about two years ago in mid South Carolina. Both trees flower like crazy but the fruit doesn't develop and eventually shrivels up leaving a bare pit on the tree. They are watered well but obviously I'm missing something. Any suggestions?
Dana P on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It may be that the tree is not strong enough to support the fruit. I would remove all the flowers and not allow any of the fruit to set for the first 2 years, so it will not take away any of the tree's energy to grow. On the 3rd year, allow it to set a small crop, making sure the limbs are able to support the fruits.
