Enjoy Crisp Gala Apples Sooner
Why Gala Apple Trees?
One of the country's most popular apple varieties, the Gala Apple Tree produces first years earlier than other trees. And since it’s low-maintenance, it’s simple to get delicious harvests all your own.
Plus, our Gala can be grown organically. Because Galas don’t have serious pest or disease issues, you’ll get 6 to 12 bushels of Galas when mature, without effort or harsh chemicals. Imagine the sweet, robust taste of Gala Apples from your own garden – along with their crisp, firm texture and hardy strength. You can snack on them right off the branches, use them for baking or even store them for up to six months.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Our Gala Apple 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. And 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!
Don't wait several years to start picking your Gala apples - plant a more developed tree for earlier fruit and a lifetime of apples with our Gala Apple Tree!
Gala Apple Tree Pollination
Gala Apple Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Selecting a tree and checking out was super easy! tree showed up fast and looks great. Very happy about over experience.
The tree was VERY healthy when it arrived. Planted it in using the instructions provided and it looks great. We purchased the Gala as a pollinator for some Honey Crisps our kids sent us from Fast Growing Trees. So far so good!
Healthy tree growing good
Our Gala apple tree was a bit worse for wear from shipping and I was very pleased at how quickly and courteous customer service is, they immediately shipped us a new tree. We have been very satisfied with the other trees we have purchased and plan on purchasing more. Thanks
The tree came in with one broken branch. Over all it is healthy and doing well. It has been in the ground for about 2 weeks so it is still early to see if it survives. It can fully leafed out and green. Over all I was satisfied with the plant.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, choose a location with full sun, which means at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. Well-drained soil is essential, but our Gala Apple Tree adapts to most soil types. Once you've selected your location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree, tamp down the surrounding soil and water to settle the roots. Finally, mulch around the tree for best results.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.
2. Watering: Your Gala Apple will benefit from a regular watering schedule each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. But if you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil, down to about 2 inches. If it's dry here, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems which are quite common in the upper portion of the tree. Weak, damaged or dead branches should also be removed for even better performance.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
