heat resistant, heritage, sweet flavorful fruit
Arlynn H on Oct 13, 2016
My Contender Peach tree did so well that I thought I would try another variety to compare them. If it does as well as the other one it may well keep me out of trouble doing the preparing and freezing. Yum.

My husband prefers a yellow meat peach and I don't think anyone can go wrong with an Elberta freestone.
Noel P on Sep 18, 2016
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.
Anthony G on May 21, 2016

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.
Wendy H on Apr 14, 2016

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.

Peach Tree of My Youth
Growing up in Arizona, we would make a yearly journey to a peach orchard near us and pick the most amazing peaches - all of them Elberta's. I was so excited to see this tree for sale. I'm in the Philly area and it is the first full year for this tree in the ground and it is doing very well. Hardy, strong growth and I've had no problem with disease or pests. I allowed it to set one peach and although it was the size of a big golf ball, it was amazing - just the way I remembered peaches tasting! Looking forward to next year's crop!

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!!

so far so good...
I planted the bare root tree last year and is immediately started growing. It survived a harsh winter and is covered with leaves this spring. I have high hopes for future fruit.

Fast growing and super hearty :)
I planted on of these trees this spring in Northern Eastern NJ. This tree has grown like no tree I have ever planted. It went from one 4’-5’ shaft this spring to a thick tree that has 3 limbs that are 8 feet tall and a couple that are 5-7 feet tall. The stump went from 5/8” to 1.5" thick in one growing season. I have also observed extremely strong root growth. I am very happy to say that I am going to need to do some major pruning this winter. I’m curious to see if I get peaches next year. I also planted an early white giant this fall so I am hoping to get good cross pollination between the two. Have a blessed Christmas :)
