Excellent early peach
This peach has fantastic flavor for an early ripening peach. Not a super vigorous grower. If I could only have two peaches that Stark sells it would be GaLa and Carolina Belle (white).

Stark Brother love your trees Don't be scarred if all you get is a stick the stick will turn out to be a beautiful tree.
when my tree came was not sure if it would grow all I got was a stick. Then I planted it and it started to grow. And 1 year later I got peaches on it. I picked all the buds off because branches are small but one so I will see what beautiful fruit will grow on it next year. Thank you will be buying again from you.

Stark bros. honored my request for a replacement whip when one of the two peach trees I bought failed. They did not even so much as ask about my planting method. I'm happy to report that the replacement is leafing out and thriving.. I'll shop here again, thanks..Dan in Connecticut

Happy and surprised
I purchased and planted 2 peach trees from Stark last year. About a week ago, I noticed that one of the trees actually has a peach on it! The trees are only 4 feet tall and has a peach already. I was already happy with the way they look. They are beautiful trees with green and red leaves. They are extremely healthy also. I'm very happy with the way these trees have turned out!

Low survival rate of gala peach
Bought three of these so they could cross pollinate. Two of them died within two months. The third is surviving and growing well. Not sure I will replace the two that died with peaches...may go for some apple trees that seem to grow well here.
