Gleason Early Elberta Peach

Prunus persica 'Gleason Early Elberta'

After a showy spring display of fragrant pink flowers, this improved variety produces delicious freestone peaches, two weeks earlier than its parent, Elberta. One of the few yellow peaches that ripens well when picked slightly green, and with excellent flavor. Grafted onto semi-dwarf Nemaguard understock. Recommended chill: 750 - 800 hours. Deciduous.
