America's most popular peach variety. Begin to bear large crops at age 3 to 4 and reach full potential at age 8 to 12. Fruit trees need a minimum of 6-8 hours sunlight daily, and need water. They are not drought tolerant. While peach trees are self-fertile and don't require another tree to produce fruit, planting two trees is recommended for a better crop (it will still require insects to pollinate its own flowers).
Our standard Elberta seedlings are budded, while our dwarf seedlings are grafted to Prunus besseyi (Sand Cherry) and Nemaguard.
Chill hours (CU) requirement: 800-950.
