Description

About the Galaxy Peach Tree

The Galaxy Peach Tree, also known as flat peach, donut peach, bagel peach, and UFO peach, is a visual delight, bearing large and unique fruit that adorns its branches like otherworldly ornaments.

Gracing your garden with pinkish-white blossoms, this variety adds elegance to your landscape. Similar to the Stark® Saturn peach, the Galaxy Peach ripens in late July, offering an early-season delight for peach enthusiasts. These large, semi-freestone peaches feature soft, blushed-red skin enveloping a smooth, firm white flesh. Known for their sweet, low-acid flavor, the clear-white, firm, and melting flesh is a testament to the meticulous breeding that went into creating this extraordinary variety.

Originating from Parlier, California, this vigorous tree was introduced in 2003 and has since become a favorite among peach enthusiasts. Galaxy was selected in 1997 for its unique shape, large fruit size, good productivity, sweet, low-acid flesh, and attractive appearance.

How to Grow a Galaxy Peach Tree

Beyond its visual appeal, cultivating the Galaxy Peach Tree is a joy. A remarkable feature is its self-pollinating nature, eliminating the need for multiple trees for cross-pollination and making it a hassle-free addition to your garden. Thriving in well-drained, loamy soil, this tree prefers a sunny location. While generally hardy, keep an eye out for common peach tree pests such as aphids or leafhoppers, and ensure proper disease management to maintain the health of your Galaxy Peach Tree.

Requiring 500 chill hours, this tree is suitable for a range of climates. Its adaptability ensures you can enjoy the beauty and bounty of this extraordinary peach variety in various growing environments.

Incorporate the Galaxy Peach Tree into your orchard, and let this celestial creation redefine your peach-growing experience.
