Prunus persica 'Galactica'
Fill in the form below and we will notify you when Galactica peach trees are back in stock.
If you do not hear from us by February you can contact us in June to pre-order for the following spring.
Galactica is a flat or peento peach - shaped like a donut. It has attactive red skin and firm white flesh, with an excellent aromatic flavor. The flesh comes away cleanly from the stone (freestone).
The fruits ripen early to mid season and in good conditions the fruits can be up to 3" across.
Galactica is a useful choice for northern growers as the flower buds have good frost resistance.
It grows with a vigorous upright form and crops heavily. Fruiting usually begins in the 3rd year.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Galactica was developed by North Carolina State University in the 1990s. It is closely related to the well known and successful Contender peach, crossed with a Fantasia nectarine, and further crossed with a Chinese flat peach to give the characteristic peento shape.
