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

Brilliant service 3 Fat Pigs!
The sheer standard of Customer service shown throughout my transaction,was 3FatPigs was peerless!
None of the Major UK suppliers I have relied upon in the past have reached your level of performance, indeed they fell dismally short!
I received the Gala Tree in perfect order, immaculately 'packed' with the roots and branches carefully folded to avoid damage.
My Maternal Family roots are Kilmartin and Doyle and what a joy to actually find 'Irish soil' adhering to the roots! I was delighted to add the silt after an over night 'steeping' to that I had prepared in my fruit Garden.
It will remain a pleasure for me in the years ahead to think of that 'little bit of Ireland' in my Garden...

It arrived safe and sound wrapped in blue clingfilm and is a very nice specimen indeed. The unwrapping took me a while,but it had certainly protected the tree and helped to protect the environment by not using cardboard.
