Peach Galaxy


Description: Peach Galaxy is a deciduous fruit tree that produces medium-sized, round to slightly oblong fruit with a yellow-orange skin and firm, juicy flesh. The fruit typically ripens in mid to late summer, depending on the climate and local growing conditions. Peach Galaxy is valued for its sweet flavor and aromatic qualities, making it a popular choice for fresh eating, baking, and preserving.

Size: The size of a Peach Galaxy tree can vary depending on factors such as the rootstock used, pruning, and growing conditions. Generally, peach trees are considered small to medium-sized trees, reaching heights of around 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) with a similar spread at maturity. However, the exact size of a Peach Galaxy tree may vary.

Best Growing Zones: Peach trees, including Peach Galaxy, are typically best suited to USDA hardiness zones 5 to 8. They require a certain number of chilling hours during the winter months to break dormancy and set fruit properly. Peach Galaxy trees thrive in regions with warm summers and cold winters, making them well-suited to areas with distinct seasons.

Soil Requirements: Peach Galaxy trees prefer well-drained soil with good fertility and a slightly acidic to neutral pH level. They can tolerate various soil types, including loamy, sandy, or clay soil, as long as it provides good drainage. Prior to planting, it's beneficial to amend the soil with organic matter such as compost or aged manure to improve soil structure and fertility.

Maintenance: Peach Galaxy trees require regular maintenance to ensure healthy growth and fruit production. Plant them in a sunny location with good air circulation to reduce the risk of fungal diseases. Prune the trees annually during the dormant season to remove any dead, diseased, or crossing branches and to shape the canopy. Water young trees regularly, especially during dry periods, to promote establishment. Fertilize the trees annually with a balanced fertilizer formulated for fruit trees, following the manufacturer's instructions.
