Gala Apple Trees

Everyone has bought Gala apples in the shop and, as ever, a home-grown one tastes so much better that it may as well be a different variety. The fruit refrigerate well and can be stored for a long time in controlled conditions, which is why supermarkets love them, but they lose their flavour during that process. They taste best when eaten fresh off the branch and for about a week afterwards, which is then a good time to juice them.
The trees are vigorous, reliable croppers, and they have lush pink and white blossom with great nectar production for bees.

Browse our range of apple trees, or all our fruit trees.


  • Eating. Sweet, crunchy. Juices well
  • Spur bearer (good for cordons & espaliers)
  • Self sterile, Pollinator, Group D
  • Harvest: October.
  • Store & ripen in a cool, dry place: 2 to 3 months, but they are at their best for eating fresh for about a week off the branch.

Our apple trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks, except for the cordons, which are grown on M9 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Gala:
They are in group D, so will cross pollinate with trees in groups C, D and E. See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners and more details.

Disease notes:
Some susceptibility to scab, so rake up leaves in Autumn.

Did You Know?

Grown worldwide, Gala is the most sold supermarket apple in the UK, passing Cox's Orange Pippin in 2010, and the most grown apple in America, passing Red Delicious in 2018. It was bred in New Zealand from Kidd's Orange Red and Golden Delicious by J. H. Kidd himself in the 1930's, but it wasn't until the 70's and 80's that it gained traction in the USA and UK.

In the 1600's, gala meant your best clothes for special occasions, rather than the event itself: that use of the word is first recorded in 1777. It appears to derive from old French words to do with making merry and celebrating, although there is speculation that it could derive from the Arabic khil'a, which is a gift of the finest clothes.
