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...

Arrived well packaged and in good + shape. I waited for freezing temps at night to subside before I planted >> but there was one more a few nights ago that Frosted the tree. But seems to be fine and healthy. Thanks
Very good. The tree has ben in the ground about 4 weeks. It is leafing out and new buds are still coming on.
what we recieved is literally just a stick
after 2 failed shipping attempts my mother finally received this plant several weeks after Christmas. The first 2 times that I was sent tracking, there was never any movement on the item, meaning it was never picked up or taken to a shipping facility. On the 3rd tracking it finally said it was picked up. My mom did not tell me or send a picture of what the plant looked like but now that I am home, it is literally just a stick in a pot of dirt. I wish that there was a way to upload a picture for everyone to see. will be asking for a refund/telling visa to reverse this charge. unbelievable
Hi Jennifer, We are so sorry that your apple tree is not satisfactory! It sounds like the tree has arrived dormant which is normal for this time of year. We'll reach out privately and see what we can do to get this resolved. We apologize again and hope to turn this experience around!
Growing well still no fruit
My tree is on its 4th year. It's beautiful seems healthy 10 ft tall. and strong but even after three years I still have no fruit. Fingers crossed for next year.
Would've Liked Taller for the $$
Bought the 3-4' Gala apple tree for $50 - it was barely 3' but looked pretty happy and healthy. Lots of leaves. It has been in the ground a few weeks now and it really took off with lots of new leaves and nodes. We are in zone 6/7 in KY with lots of clay so we amended with sphagnum and Miracle Grow Tree & Shrub soil. We'll see how it does after a few years. It's close to a Granny Smith and a Honeycrisp so hopefully we'll get good production. Lot of money for such a small tree...
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.
