About Elberta Girl

‘Elberta Girl’ was created by Tom Wagner of Everett, Washington, USA. Introduced in Tom Wagner’s 1983 Tater Mater Seed Catalog as T-3, and listed by the current name in 1985. First offered in the Seed Savers 1989 Yearbook by David Cavagnaro of Decorah, Iowa.*
Determinate, regular, and wooly leaf plant produces small (2oz./60g), fuzzy, round or oval, red striped fruits with well-balanced, slightly tangy flavors. Late, about 85 days to maturity.

*Some seed vendors sell this variety under the name ‘Elberta Peach’. According to Tom Wagner’s post on his ‘Tatermater’ Forum, posted in 2008, ‘Elberta Girl’ and ‘Elberta Peach’ are the same variety. Here is what Tom writes:
“My guess is that ‘Elberta Peach’ is the same as ‘Elberta Girl’. I should be glad that they kept the name ‘Elberta’ with it. The peach thing is a no-brainer, since Elberta is a peach, but then again, who knows anything about the old peach varieties? As a plant breeder, it would be nice to have a hat tip on the varieties I have developed.”
