One of the most cold hardy and frost tolerant of the Elberta peaches, Gleason Elberta produces large, juicy peaches with a yellow flesh and a wonderful peach flavor. They're a good all-purpose, clingstone peach and good for eating fresh, baking into desserts, canning and freezing. The fruits are attractive, too, with yellow skins blushed with red. The tree is quite ornamental with showy pink, fragrant blossoms in the springtime. The fruits ripen in early July. 800 chill hours required. Zones 5-9.
