For something out of this world, try the Galaxy Donut Peach! Unique and novelty fruit, often called Flat, Donut, Doughnut or Bagel peaches, these unusually shaped, juicy, firm and delectably sweet! Anything but boring in shape and flavor, it's not typical heart-shaped peach!
The Galaxy Donut Peach Tree (Prunus persica 'Galaxy') is an absolutely gorgeous tree! The weeping branches are ornamental, especially when they’re blossoming in white and pink blooms, or weighted down in rosy-blushed fruit!
Covered in vibrant green foliage, Galaxy is a modestly-sized fruit tree that can be kept as small as you need, while still providing you and your family with large, sweet Peaches.
Ripening in mid-late summer, these are ready just in time for summer grilling and barbecues, and a cool treat on hot summer days. Galaxy is about 50% larger than other donut varieties, and the fruit has a marvelous reddish blush, with a hint of yellow. The semi-cling stones are small, so there is more peach for you to eat.
Bearing up to 50 pounds of fruit per tree in the second or third year. This disease-resistant tree grows well in warmer climates and survives cold winters as well. But one of the most spectacular characteristics of this variety is the sweeping foliage, bending toward the ground like a weeping willow, ornamented with beautiful reddish-orange fruit.
Self-pollinating, you’ll only need a single tree, but for a much larger yield, you can plant them with other peaches. And who wouldn’t want more? Bite into this juicy peach, and while the juice drips down your chin, that white flesh just melts in your mouth!
A beautiful, ornamental tree like this deserves the spotlight. The graceful weeping form, gorgeous bloom set and those fuzzy novelty gems make for a fantastic specimen tree for your front yard!
Providing great shade for patios and seating areas, these accent trees are just as suitable for home orchards of all sizes.
Use these sweet, firm and juicy peaches in all your favorite recipes! Grill them to bring out the sweetness and caramelize the sugars, slice them fresh, pack them for an easy lunch treat, or blend them into your favorite smoothies and ice cream!
Fruit trees need full sun, at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for optimal results. Hardy in USDA growing zones 5-8, Galaxy Peach is great for cold hardiness zones and warm climates alike.
When you plant your Galaxy Donut Peach Tree, choose a location with loamy, well-drained soil, enriched with compost and organic matter. Mulch well to retain moisture and insulate the roots!
Provide ample water for your young tree while it becomes established, not allowing it to dry out between waterings. Then reduce your watering to moderate, yet consistent moisture during the heat of summer and when fruiting.
Bred to resist diseases that afflict other peach varieties. This variety's fruit matures in August and has been a favorite among peach growers for the past 25 years.
