Elberta Peach
This tree has done very well from the start, and continues to grow well. It had several blossoms and even has produced 13 small peaches from them. I think all but four have since fallen off. I am leaving them on to see what happens, but I feel they will fall off as well. This is only the second spring for it as well, but it may have been "on the lot" longer than the other trees. LOL anyway it is doing great and likes it's spot and weather as well. Highly recommended.

Looking good
These were the first I ordered from Stark brothers and I was surprised to basically just see a stick with some roots on it. Nevertheless, I followed the soaking instructions and planted them. It looked comical at first to see what looked like sticks in a circle of mulch, but VERY quickly the little sticks sprouted leaves and tiny branches. They are doing very well and I am looking forward to see how well they produce fruit in a few years.

Impressive
This little peach tree has more than doubled in size since we put it in the ground last year. It did bloom its little heart out this year but I would not allow them to go to peaches. I wanted a stronger tree so I cut the blooms off this year.
