peach elberta

Prunus Persica ‘Elberta’

Elberta peach tree
Elberta is an heirloom variety and one of the most popular peach trees. These freestone peaches are prolific producers and can yield as much as 150 pounds of sweet and juicy fruit every year. The branches are adorned with fragrant pink blossoms in early to mid-spring. In fall, the leaves turn a deep yellow.

Alberta is a self-pollinating tree forming a rounded crown. It grows to about 14 feet at maturity.

Height: 10′ – 14′

Width: 8′ – 12′

Exposure: Full sun is best.

Watering and soil: Moist, well drained soil, loam or sand. Water well while establishing.

Fertilizer: Use a well balanced fertilizer or slow release formula.

Pruning: Peaches do require annual pruning to keep them healthy, strong, and bountiful. They are excellent fruit trees for espalier training too. To receive maximum sunlight and good air circulation, train these trees to an open center shape. Be sure to remove all rootstock suckers, dead and non-fruiting wood.
