Gala Peach

Gala Peach

A large, freestone peach with a melting texture. It has good flavor and colors nicely to a deep red over a yellow background. GaLa harvests five to six days before Redhaven, filling an important season between Sentry and Redhaven. The trees crop annually and are somewhat resistant to bacterial spot. GaLa was a joint release from the Louisiana Ag Experiment Station and USDA-ARS in Byron, Georgia. It has been tested for many years and has adapted well to both central and southern regions.

About Rootstock

Our peach and nectarine trees are grown on industry standard Bailey rootstock. If we need to purchase peach trees to supplement our own inventory, these trees are typically grown on Lovell rootstock. For a traditional, open center planting we recommend spacing the trees 12-14’ in row and 20’ between rows. For perpendicular V training, the recommended spacing is 6’ in row and 20’ feet between rows.
