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.

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!

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.
