Growing well
This little tree is thriving - this year it actually has a few peaches on it which is amazing since it's so small and I just planted it not long ago.

Stark Elberta Queen Peach
Both Elberta's trees you offer have done really well with me. I start growing them in the 1980's. I moved and started them again with great fruit. Two winters ago then it was 20+ below zero for more than two weeks I lost 2 out of the 3 trees. I planted two new ones a year ago and this year they look great. I should be having a little fruit from them next year but the year after they will be going strong. The Elberta's are one of the best flavor fruits for canning or just eating. I really like them over Red Havens. My trees are healthy.

Stark Elberta Queen Peach
When the tree first arrived, I was disappointed with the crooked trunk, so I called and complained, because I had spent alot of money buying 5 fruit trees, etc,. Customer service corrected the situation and sent me a new tree. So far it seems healthy and is beginning to flush out its leaves.

My favorite peach
Stark Elberta Queen is my favorite peach! If properly thinned it produces softball sized fruit that ripens in late Aug-early September in zone 5b (northern Utah). It is the perfect combination of sweet and tart, peels easily when ripe and always freestone. I also planted another variety that ripens earlier (Redhaven), but everyone can hardly wait until Elberta Queen is ready!

Quality to Start With
This is the best bare root tree I've ever received from a vendor. In my first purchase from Stark Bros, I also bought a dwarf cherry tree which is of the same quality. The peach tree is already sprouting leaves and I am excited to watch it progress in its first year.

I was so impressed with the quality of the two fruit trees that I also ordered some grape plants and a black walnut tree. Can't wait to get and plant them.

Great job so far, Stark Bros! I'll update as time goes by.
