Elbertas were the cling peach of my childhood. My mother bought them by the lug for canning. They had tight skins and unforgiving pits, but the meat was firm, as opposed to Freestones )many varieties) which skinned easily, gave up their pits and turned to mush when canned. As I remember it...

As a kid, what I remember most were canned peaches...DelMonte or S&W. IIRC, Elberta, which I always referred to as the stringy peaches were the more expensive ones. The others were just cling peaches. They were firmer and a little slimy. Most canned peaches that I remember, sucked. Canned vegetables and canned fruit in the supermarket, then and now, are a disgrace to nature IMO.
