Elberta Peach Tree
One of the best canning peaches!
The Elberta Peach tree has very large fruit. It is the best known yellow canning peach. The skin is red blushed over a deep golden yellow color. This is a high quality eating and canning peach.
A famed peach for canning. The tree bears crops of large, attractive yellow fruit with a splash of crimson. Juicy, evenly yellow flesh is great for fresh eating as well as freezing and canning for extended enjoyment. Originates from Marshallville, Georgia in 1870.
In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!
