The fruit is large with mostly yellow skin with some blush tones. Gleason peaches are juicy with yellow flesh and rich flavor, great for fresh eating, canning, and freezing.

This frost-tolerant peach tree is commonly grown in Utah and the Pacific Northwest. Harvest Gleason Early Elberta peaches in July, about 10 days before Elberta. The Gleason Early Elberta Peach is self-pollinating.
