The Perfect Blend of Modern and Old Fashioned
The Gala Apple Tree (Malus ‘Gala’) produces a delicious snacking apple that is quickly becoming a favorite in grocery stores. It’s an attractive flowering tree with irresistible fruit.
You will be delighted when your Gala bursts to life in spring. The beautiful pink buds will open to reveal snowy white flowers, a sure sign that your tree is well on its way to producing fruit.
Throughout the summer the Gala apples mature to a bright overall red color, with bold red stripes over a yellow-green background. The fruit is firm, juicy and sweet with a slight tart flavor.
The Gala Apple Trees fruit young and ripen early. You can start harvesting your apples as early as August, and continue through the fall. Soon your tree should start producing bushels of apples, plenty to share with family and friends.
Although the Gala apple is popular for their large, crisp fruit, they also resist bruising and can be stored up to six months. This means you could be eating fresh, home-grown apples as late as February and March. What a treat for you and your family.
For larger harvests we recommend planting your Gala Apple Tree with a pollinator. Good choices for cross pollination would be our Braeburn, McIntosh and Pink Lady apple trees.
The Gala Apple Tree is an easy to grow, adaptable tree that matures quickly. The apples are highly coveted for pies and sauces, and the tree itself would be an attractive addition to any yard.
