GaLa Peach Tree
Begins shipping mid-April.
A delicious and large early ripening peach!
Grow this juicy summer treat in your own backyard! One of the earliest ripening peaches, the GaLa Peach tree is prized for its flavor. The fruit has firm texture and minimal fuzz that make it perfect for fresh eating and canning. These freestone peaches are easy to process, and the flavor retains long after harvest.
Expect a reliable crop, year after year. These peaches ripen in mid-July, days before Redhaven. GaLa is a self-pollinating peach tree and is noted for having disease-resistance to bacterial leaf spot.

Size & Spacing
This variety is self pollinating.
In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You’ll get fruit with only one plant!
How do I find my Hardiness Zone?
Canada’s Plant Hardiness Zones will tell you which plants will do well in your particular climate. Each zone is determined by the lowest average winter temperature recorded in a given area. Hardiness Zone information is included on all tree and plant product pages, so you know instantly whether a certain plant is likely to succeed where you live. Natural Resources Canada provides helpful options to find your zone:

I purchased and planted 2 peach trees from Stark last year. About a week ago, I noticed that one of the trees actually has a peach on it! The trees are only 4 feet tall and has a peach already. I was already happy with the way they look. They are beautiful trees with green and red leaves. They are extremely healthy also. I’m very happy with the way these trees have turned out!

The tree looked fairly butchered up when it arrived. I planted immediately and watered regularly. It sprouted leaves before going dormant over Winter, then never returned to life.

it died so I don’t have anything to say really. I think it would have been great if it survived.

Unfortunately my apple tree was snapped off from a wind storm but the peach tree is growing nice! Hopefully next year we’ll get peaches from it, this is year 3 for us.

Stark bros. honored my request for a replacement whip when one of the two peach trees I bought failed. They did not even so much as ask about my planting method. I’m happy to report that the replacement is leafing out and thriving.. I’ll shop here again, thanks..Dan in Connecticut

when my tree came was not sure if it would grow all I got was a stick. Then I planted it and it started to grow. And 1 year later I got peaches on it. I picked all the buds off because branches are small but one so I will see what beautiful fruit will grow on it next year. Thank you will be buying again from you.

the tree is just starting it’s second year of growth. it is very healthy and vigorous I am extremely pleased
Patrick Seburn –
This peach has fantastic flavor for an early ripening peach. Not a super vigorous grower. If I could only have two peaches that Stark sells it would be GaLa and Carolina Belle (white).

Bought three of these so they could cross pollinate. Two of them died within two months. The third is surviving and growing well. Not sure I will replace the two that died with peaches…may go for some apple trees that seem to grow well here.
