Looking for peaches which are hardy in the COLD North of NY Hudson Valley

I've purchased Gala Peaches for years, Since they're good for fresh eating and canning we decided to grow our own. I've read that the tree is sturdy and not too difficult to grow. We had apple and pear trees at our last house.We moved last year and are ready to plant a mini orchard here. We are quite excited, this is our first peach tree.

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.

Large and delicious
We planted these in 2012 and they bore for the first time this spring (2016). They were large, sweet and beautiful peaches. While we had to thin our other types of peaches, they were so prolific, these trees set just the right amount of peaches. They have survived and thrived in our central Illinois winters. Highly recommend.

Healthy tree
I received this tree in error. What a pleasant mistake. It is in its third season for me and had many blossoms and many peaches. I thinned them so that the tree was not over stressed. I canned the peaches and have tasty sauce to eat. I really love this tree, nicely shaped and about 12 feet tall so far.

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!

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).

Very healthy trees
Trees have grown rapidly and are doing well. I keep deer guards around them so the deer can't strip them.
