Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Red Gala is one of the easiest apples to grow. The upright, but spreading tree is very grower friendly. It blooms in mid-season and can be pollinated by most any variety. In order to get larger size on this medium sized apple, thin it down to one fruit per cluster. Trim annually to promote proper vigor and reduce the amount of spurs that it eventually will produce. Over-pruning and too vigorous growth will make it susceptible to fire blight.


A Little History about Gala-Red Gala Apple

The original Gala was selected as a seedling in 1939 in New Zealand, and finally introduced to the US in 1973. It has taken the country by storm and now ranks as one of the most popular apples. When Grandpa first tasted it, he fell in love with it and recommended it to all his friends. Gala tends to "throw" a lot of "sports", so now there are Gala strains of every red shade and size.
