The Elberta peach is the favorite peach tree for home gardeners in the United States! It originated in Marshallville, Georgia, in 1870, where it was grown by Samuel H. Rumph, who named the variety after his wife, Clara Elberta Moore.
This variety of tree is famed for producing large quantities of excellent fruit for canning. The juicy, yellow flesh is great for eating fresh, as well as canning and freezing. It is a freestone peach (also known as a melting peach), meaning that the flesh separates easily from the peach pit and softens as it ripens.
In the spring, the tree blooms with stunning pink blossoms. It is self-pollinating, but adding another peach tree nearby may increase the size of your crop.
