Gala Reachables® Apple Tree

Top-Quality Snacking Apple

A long-time favorite eating apple, Gala bears big, shapely fruits with red-orange streaks over a golden background. Crisp, white flesh has a delicious, tangy-sweet flavor. Ripens in September. Zones 4-8.

Now available in Reachables™ size! Gala Reachables™ Apple Tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. It's also easier to manage than full-sized trees. One person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables™ require a tree support.

Produces in Less Than 2 Years! Our Reachables™ trees bear a small fruit crop in under two years—and larger crops in the subsequent years.

Easy to Plant! The fully leafed-out Reachables™ tree ships with a bamboo stake that provides temporary support until replaced with a sturdy tree support. The tree is potted in an Ellepot. Made of biodegradable paper, Ellepots can be planted directly into the ground.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
