Enjoy Crisp Gala Apples Sooner

Why Gala Apple Trees?

One of the country's most popular apple varieties, the Gala Apple Tree produces 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 your tree is mature and established. 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 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.

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!

Pollination Info

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...

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. Fertilizing: It's best to fertilize in late winter or early spring. As an alternative, you can buy commercial fertilizer produced for fruiting trees and follow the instructions.

4. 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.

Tree arrived in great condition

1 of a 4 tree order

The first thing I wanted to get done as to plant 4 of my planned fruit trees. I ordered 2 apple and 2 peach trees too plant this fall. They arrived in great condition looking healthy and well package. The chat service was a big help making my decisions for which trees to buy.

Apple Tree

I ordered a tree online and it came very quickly. It looked a little wilted upon arrival, but nothing major. After planting it, the tree looked much worse. I emailed customer service and they immediately sent me a new tree, free of charge. They were so kind, generous, and easy to work with. The second tree looks much better and we have had no issues. I would order from here again for the fact of how great the customer service was.
