Dwarf Elberta Peach Tree
A Shorter Version of a Standard Peach Classic
Elberta is a tried-and-true Georgia peach tree from the 1800s. But with today’s smaller backyard landscapes, the Dwarf Elberta Peach is a better fit. Even though it typically grows only to 10 feet tall and wide, a single mature tree can yield up to 3 bushels of sweet peaches!
The University of Georgia describes the Elberta Peach as having a “melting” flesh texture. This is “peach talk” for how these fruits are classified. A “melting” flesh texture means that the fruits soften as they ripen, so by the time you’re ready to harvest them, their juiciness seems to melt in your mouth! These kinds of “melting flesh” peaches -- such as Elberta -- are best for fresh snacking. Simply walk outside, pick a peach off your own tree and enjoy!
Snacking, Baking and Canning
Peaches contain natural antioxidants, they are low in calories, and they’re high in fiber and vitamin C. Each luscious fruit is packed with healthy benefits! Enjoy fresh peach ice cream, bake peach cobbler or can some fresh peaches to enjoy during winter.

Peach Trees are for Growing Peaches, Not Pretty Leaves
This variety is a heavy producer of fruit. During the growing season, it focuses on growing as many peaches as it can. If there are spots or holes in your leaves, this is normal. Your tree is focusing its energy on producing fruit.
