Dazzling Darling Galaxy Donut PeachUnique and Exciting Fruit Form
Highly Disease Resistant
The Galaxy Donut Peach (Prunus persica ‘Galaxy’) is anything but boring in shape and flavor. While not the typical heart-shaped peach, the Galaxy Donut Peach is one of the best donut varieties.
It grows well in zones colder zones and requires less work because it has been 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.
Many peach donut varieties are smaller, but the Galaxy Donut Peach is about 50% larger than others. The fruit has a marvelous reddish blush, with just a hint of yellow, and their semi-cling stones are small, so there is more peach for you to eat. Bite into this juicy peach, and while the juice drips down your chin, the white flesh will melt in your mouth.
In early spring, as the weather warms, the branches on your Galaxy Donut Peach tree will become covered by pink and white blossoms. Bees and butterflies will thank you for giving them all these wonderful flowers to pollinate. While the Galaxy Donut Peach self-pollinates, you would be wise to plant two because that will improve the pollination and give you more peaches to enjoy later.
The Galaxy Donut Peach will bear 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.
When you plant your Galaxy Donut Peach tree, choose a spot where it can stretch its limbs in the full sun and sink its roots into well-drained loamy soil. Like other varieties of peach, they like to be watered once a week or so, but not overwatered.
Don’t wait too long to order your Galaxy Donut Peach tree, because they sell out quickly. You are not the only one who will love the beautiful tree and the delicious fruit. Order yours before they are gone.
