Elberta Peach Tree

Prunus persica 'Early Elberta'

  • The Elberta is cold hardy down to -10 degrees, so it thrives up north or down south.
  • They're self-fertile, but we recommend planting your Elberta Trees in pairs to increase production. 
  • You can get peaches as soon as the first season.

Elberta Peach Tree Care

View Full Planting & Care Instructions
sun shining


The Elberta grows best in full sun (at least six hours of sunlight per day).

drops of water


Generally, watering once to twice a week is sufficient. Make sure the water saturates the soil without leaving standing water. Once the soil around the tree has dried about 3 inches down, water the tree again.



Apply 1 lb. of a balanced fertilizer formula, such as 12-12-12, after your tree has been planted for six weeks. In addition, apply ¾ lb. of fertilizer in the spring before the tree pushes out new growth. Repeat this process in the summer and fall.

Even better? Elberta Peach Trees are the most disease resistant peach trees available. And these trees are even insect resistant, meaning you can grow your peaches organically. No more harsh chemicals or sprays.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Because we’ve nurtured your tree, continually pruning back to encourage more branches, you'll see dramatic growth. The additional limbs produce significantly more fruit and produce it much more quickly. Since we’ve done the work ahead of time, 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 self fertile, but normally planted in pairs, so they can pollinate each other. This pollination causes your trees to produce more fruit - which means more beautiful bounties for you. We recommend cross-pollinating your Elberta with the Red Haven Peach Tree.

Elberta Peach Trees grow rapidly and mature quickly. The faster they grow, the sooner they reward you with delicious fruit. Order your very own Elberta today!

    Excellent trees are doing well

    Planted two last year, they’re doing great and both have baby peaches on them! It’s only April here in Virginia, and I’m looking forward to a good harvest this summer.

    Elberta Peach Tree

    I bought 2 Elberta Peach Tree Aug 7 2019 and they did beautiful, producing lots of peaches every year. Until this year march 2024 one of my peach trees just died. I have no clue as why it died. Could you maybe give me some idea. I did everything right & got beautiful peaches, but can't figure out why one died Thanks, Shirley

    Love the Elberta tree so far!!!

    Tree came in looking very healthy and pruning looked good as well. It has already flowered since we got it just a few weeks ago. I've still got it in the pot until a feel a little more comfortable about our weather staying warm.
