Description

A well loved variety in the UK, Apple 'Gala' is widely grown in gardens and a popular supermarket choice. This reliable cultivar produces attractive, red flushed fruits with a surprisingly sweet flavour when eaten straight from the tree, and make a delicious juicing apple. The fruits can be harvested from September onwards, and eaten fresh or stored for up to 3 months whilst retaining their sweet flavour.

  • Apple rootstocks:
  • M27 - Extreme dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 1.5m (5')
  • M9/ Pajam 9/ P22/ P9 - Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5m (8')
  • M26 - Dwarf reaching a mature height of 2.5-3m (8-10')
  • M6 - Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 3m (10')
  • MM106 - Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 4m (13')

This variety is partially self-fertile. For the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as a suitable pollinator.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

How to Grow
Plant patio fruit trees in 60cm (2’) diameter containers using a good quality compost such as John innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.
More Info
Feed and water containerised plants regularly. Pruning fruit trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about six main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. From the fourth year, some sub branches can be pruned out at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.
