description for "Peach and Nectarine: Prunus persica 'Early Elberta'"

'Early Elberta' has all the good qualities of its famous parent—large, attractive, high-quality fruit—but it ripens in July, a month earlier. Ornamental, too, with dark green foliage and red-hued blossoms. Self-pollinating. Average yield of 1/2 to 3/4 bushel. Tree will reach a mature height of 8-10 feet. Plant 10 feet apart. Will grow in almost any soil but drainage must be good. Does not do well in wet areas. Fertile, sandy soil is best. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
