How much fruit will I get?
You'll start picking fruit the first growing season with these trees. Our large, well-branched varieties have been specially pruned to encourage more fruit production. This also creates a more established root system, meaning you won't have to wait years for your trees to bear fruit. A mature tree will produce an average of three bushels of fruit- that's about 120-150 lbs of fruit. At current market rates of $3.50 per pound, growers will save $420-$525!
What do Elberta peaches taste like?
Elberta peaches are yellow-fleshed, with a red blush. They have a sweet flavor and are quite juicy. Elberta peaches are common in cobblers, pies, and jams.
Pollination & fruiting season
The Elberta Peach tree is a self-pollinator, and requires no partner fruit tree in order for it to produce peaches. You can expect to harvest fruit starting in September. It has a large yield that provides plenty of fruit. These peaches can be stored in a bowl for several days. They will retain freshness even longer if refrigerated or frozen.
Best time to plant
We recommend planting your trees immediately so they have time to adapt to their new climate. Elbertas can be planted year-round in growing zones 5-9 as long as your ground isn’t frozen. We recommend finding an area in your yard that gets plenty of direct sunlight.
Due to agricultural restrictions, we cannot ship this tree to AZ, AR, CA, ID, LA or WA.
