• One of the country's most popular apples!
• Produces fruit years earlier than other apple trees
• Low maintenance, grow organically
Don't wait 3 to 5 years to start picking your Gala apples – plant a better developed tree for earlier fruit and a lifetime of more apples!
Gala apples are so popular because of their sweet taste, but more importantly their crisp, firm texture. They resist bruising, softening and other defects. You can even store them for up to 6 months.
Gala Apple Trees produce fruit in late spring for picking in August and September. On average you will get between 6 to 12 bushels of Gala Apples when your tree is mature.
Gala Apple Trees are adaptable and easy to grow. Yours will quickly mature to an ideal height of up to 15 feet and have a full, oval shape - making it an attractive yard tree as well.
You can even grow your Gala Apples organically. Grow your fruit without spraying chemicals.
It's critical that you purchase an apple tree that is already "branched". This is where the nursery prunes its young trees back to promote more branches. More branches mean more fruit, earlier production, stronger limbs and a healthier tree. This method has already caused our apple trees to produce fruit in our nursery!
Most nurseries sell tall, skinny stems with no branches – these are referred to as "whips". They can take several years to fruit and will generally be less productive when mature.
Our trees are pruned back and trained to develop a massive branching structure. This process means more work and an extra year for us, but the difference you experience is dramatic.
Before your trees are shipped, we give them one final pruning at no additional cost to you. This final pruning allows your trees to remain "dwarfed," which means you have more apples at a safe, easy picking height!
With proper care, you will be able to start picking apples after the first season, or as soon as the first year under optimal conditions.
Order early because our popular Gala apple trees sell out quickly. Only limited quantities available.
