I planted on of these trees 15 years ago and it produced very good old fashioned peaches. I am planting a new one as the old one is past it's prime and is starting to fade.

Hopefully, I will get great peaches in July from this tree and more in September with my dwarf Elberta!

Small space and desire to have fruiting tree.

Great peach tree for early eating. Peach cobbler and pie by the end of July. What's not to like.
Andy L on Apr 17, 2016
This variety sounds sweet, juicy, and wonderful. We are in zone 9A, which is HOT, and this is supposed to be hearty enough to survive here. I also like the age of it - 1930s. I think it will be just right for us.

Space consideration, self pollinating, early fruiting

Has it been your experience that this type of peach keep it's flavor well when canned? How does it compare in taste to Redhaven, Sunhaven, Sentry, or Delicious varieties (in taste)?
Karen H on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I like the flavor of this peach. I have an older tree. The peach keeps it flavor well when canning or freezing. Comparable to Red Havens.

Excellent yellow peach!
I grow several varieties of stark bros peaches and this is one of my favorite yellow varieties. Good fresh, for baking, or frozen. Disease resistant and easy to grow.

Heavenly Peach
Already an owner of this famed peach, I had to have more. When one walks through the orchard, the air is heady with these peaches just prior to picking!! Purchasing one of these, will be an enjoyable experience.

Quality Company, Quality Plants
Just received my tree and the roots are now soaking prior to planting. This is my second tree from Stark Bros. Previously I was a customer of Miller Nursery here in NY.
The tree arrived right on time as scheduled. Information and tracking of the package was perfect. I was glad to see that the tree was packaged really well and the roots kept damp with the shredded paper.
There is one review on this tree that the tree withered and died. I can tell you that if you follow the directions precisely as they are written and demonstrated here in video form, your tree will perform well.
I am going to review the tree again as its growing season matures this year. Would love to post a picture so maybe you can update your site to allow reviewers to showcase the success they have with your trees and plants.
Customer service is first rate. I did pay to receive a supreme tree and the difference from a standard is amazing. It is well worth the few dollars more.
Take the time to dig a good hole and prep it well, the tree will thank you for it. $50 tree needs a $100 hole!!

Best tasting peach I have ever eaten!!
My Burbank July Elberta Peach trees are still young. 2 should produce this year. I got 3 peaches on one last year and they were excellent. I now have 5 of these and highly recommend this tree. Especially if I get a good harvest this year.

Impressive growth!
I didn't think the tree would do much when I received it in the mail. It really surprised me! In one year it has tripled in size, branched out beautifully! Would recommend buying these.
