Lemon Elberta Peach Tree (Prunus persica 'Lemon Elberta') is a fantastic upgrade to the already amazing Elberta Peach! Brilliant yellow, fuzzy skin with a slight red blush when ripe, and brilliant yellow flesh!
One of the finest fresh eating peaches available. Firm flesh and incredible flavor, as well as great yield, making it a highly valuable tree.
These yellow freestone peaches are wonderful choices for cooking, preserves, freezing and baking. This is also a great canning variety because the fruit is nice and firm. You'll get thick, meaty slices that can be dried or dehydrated as a fantastic snack.
Ripening in the early-late season. You'll likely harvest in September, although some areas come on a little earlier in August. Though self-fruitful, planting with another variety gives larger yields and extends your harvest season.
The pink spring blossoms are a fantastic display and make this a highly ornamental flowering tree, in addition to the crops of healthy fruit!
The green glossy foliage provides a fantastic backdrop for the late-season harvest of yellow fuzzy fruit. Harvest earlier than other late-season crops, you can plant among early and late season Peaches for a larger harvest and extend your growing season.
An outstanding specimen, these are ornamental landscaping trees that provide a nice backdrop to your garden beds.
Prune smaller for easy harvest and to tuck into established landscapes. Or, when left unpruned, creates fantastic shade. Set out your lawn chair and watch the bees busily work, or watch your harvest ripen in the cooling shade.
Peaches grow best in full sun, at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. Great in the Pacific Northwest region, these are best in USDA growing zones 5 through 8 in good draining soil.
While not particular on soil type, fruit trees do best in enriched, highly organic, well-drained soil. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Water regularly to ensure a healthy tree and juicy harvest. While somewhat drought tolerant once established, it’s best to protect your investment with a regular watering schedule. Keep young trees especially well-watered and do not allow them to dry out.
Situate in an area that is protected from frost pockets and with good air circulation. Prune to keep an open canopy so that both sunlight and airflow reach the interior.
