Gala Apple Tree 4-5ft, in a 6L Pot, Self-Fertile, Sweet Flavour, Good For Juice


Gala Apple / Malus Domestica 'Gala' Tree 4-5Fft Tall In a 6L Pot


One of the most widely grown apple varieties in the world, and a mainstay of the supermarket apple selection - not least because it is available year round from northern and southern hemisphere suppliers.


Growing Details:


Common Name: Apple
Genus: Malus
Species: domestica
Cultivar: 'Gala'
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Clay/heavy, Acidic, Chalky/alkaline



Gala is a cross between Kidd's Orange Red and Golden Delicious - a highly promising start. Bearing in mind that Kidd's Orange Red is the offspring of Cox's Orange Pippin and (Red) Delicious, Gala is effectively a union of three of the world's most important and distinctive apple varieties. Being partially self-fertile, you can get away with not having a pollination partner, though your crop size will suffer a bit. Fiesta is a mid-late season flowerer and can cross pollinate with any tree in the mid or late season categories.



It is partially self-fertile.

For better fruiting plant a compatible partner:

Braeburn, Cornish Aromatic, Discovery, Ellison's Orange, Fiesta, Granny Smith, Grenadier, Howgate Wonder, James Grieve, Katy, Laxton's Superb, Malus Evereste, Malus John Downie, Red Devil, Spartan, Worcester Pearmain

    Bought this as one of two polinators to go with the Bramleys. The tree arrived well packaged, undamaged and good time. I look forward to monitoring it's performance.
