Peach Tree - Elberta
Spring Color and Abundant Fruit on Dwarf Peach Tree
The Elberta Peach (Prunus persica 'Elberta') is certainly one of the most beautiful, and useful peach trees you could own.
Plant a row of them along your driveway to amaze your neighbors with their scarlet spring flowers and August harvest.
The peach itself is so lovely with it red-blushed fuzzy yellow skin that it’s almost a shame to bite into its sweet, juicy flesh. When eating this peach, your teeth will rarely graze the pit as it has one of the smallest freestone pits of any peach.
The Elberta is known for bearing a large crop, so you’ll be able to share your good fortune each year with friends and neighbors.
The Elberta Peach is a compact dwarf tree, growing to 15-30 feet with equal spread, so it won’t take up too much of your planting space. It’s disease and insect resistant and quite adaptable to various soil types, so you won’t have to fuss much with it.
The Elberta Peach is self-fruitful, but will yeild more fruit in the presence of a pollenizer such as the Red Haven Peach.
The Elberta is prized for its large fruit, great for both eating right off the tree, pies, preserves, or canning
The fragrant spring flowers add to this little tree's appeal, making it a terrific choice for both beauty and usefulness.
Make sure trees you buy are measured from the base up!
While this may sound a bit sneaky, the sad truth is some nurseries try to make their trees seem a lot taller by including the roots in the height.
Even worse, others will charge you for a large tree but then hack them down to fit in a smaller & cheaper box.
We sell our trees with the height measured from the base up. When you buy a tree from Nature Hills Nursery, it will be the height you paid for after you plant it.
We take pride in delivering the highest quality plants with healthy roots and full, well-established stems and foliage. We offer the largest selection on the internet and you can buy in confidence with our one year plant guarantee.
Our trees are always in high demand. Order now before they sell out!
