Self-Pollinating

The most cold-hardy of all the Elberta varieties!

This improved variety of Elberta peach tree produces delicious freestone peaches. It is also called Improved Elberta or Lemon Elberta, and is the most cold-hardy of all the Elberta varieties.

The Elberta peach is a large fruit with mostly yellow skin and some blush tones. Its flesh is yellow and it has a rich flavor, making it great for fresh eating, canning, and freezing.

Commonly grown in frost-tolerant areas such as Utah and the Pacific Northwest. Peaches can be harvested in August, about 10 days before the Elberta variety. Self-pollinating.
