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...

The 4-foot tree arrived after 3 weeks of ordering. It was in pretty good shape and had 4 branches and a few leaves on it. unboxed it immediately and planted it the same evening. It's been another 2 weeks but there is no new growth on it so far. A few existing leaves are slowly turning yellow. Will wait another 2 weeks to find out if it grows.
We're sorry to hear about your concerns! It can take several weeks for a tree to become acclimated after planting. If you are still having issues within the next few weeks, please reach out to us and we'll be happy to take a look!
Order the tree around June2020 and received in July2020, it took a while to get to me but the gala apple tree came in boxed up, most of the leaves are having lots of brownish color spot and in Texas the weather is so hot in July. I took out the burlap that was cover at the root and put it in a big container under the shade and its doing well with all the new leaves coming out. I am happy and cant wait until the weather cool down in September and put it to the ground. I don't see a place where I can upload my recent gala apple tree that I bought from fast growing tree.
The first tree arrived damaged in transit; the main trunk had been bent over and split. (I’d recommend some mid-point bracing in the packaging.) Great looking tree apart from that. Customer service was excellent; free replacement ordered immediately. Replacement arrived safely, now in ground, looking good. I had previously purchased smaller, cheaper apple trees from Stark Bro's — it’s worth paying more to get these great trees from FastGrowingTrees. Very happy.
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!
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.
