Gala Apple

Top-Quality Snacking Apple

Developed in New Zealand—a great-tasting import. Big, shapely fruits have red-orange streaks over a golden background. Crisp white flesh has a delicious, tangy-sweet flavor. Ripens in September.

Now available in Reachables size! A Reachables 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.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

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