Elberta Peach Tree Care
Provide full sun, as it will yield the biggest harvests! Too little light will cause growth issues.
Fertilization is suggested, especially if the soil is poor. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option. We recommend that fertilizations be applied in the spring.
Does best in soil that's moist, slightly acidic, and well draining. Does not thrive in dry soil!
Pruning and trimming is typically required to maintain a functional shape. Any heavy trimming should be done shortly after the tree has fully finished flowering.
Water regularly, especially after planting prior to establishment. Attempt to keep soil moist, but not wet. It's suggested to place 2"-3" of mulch under this plant to help retain a light degree of ground moisture and to prevent the growth of weeds around the base.
Space peach trees 15' apart.
