Gala Apple Tree - Malus domestica "Gala" :

The Gala apple blends modern and old-fashioned parentage. The Gala matures to a bright overall red color, with bold red stripes over a yellow background. The fruit is firm, juicy, fine textured, with a yellow white flesh. The Gala is sweet, with a slightly tart flavor. It is a highly coveted apple by the consumer, with great bouquet, flavor and color.

It is aromatic with a very sweet flavor and it has a crisp and firm texture. The Gala ripens early and stores very well (shelf life-6 months in regular storage). The Gala, a fresh fruit delight, is very much in demand for fresh salads and it's got the mild flavor that "picky eaters" prefer and a striking bright yellow-red color that attracts the eye!

The Gala apple tree grows best in Zones 4 to 8. More info on Hardiness Zones

Zone 4  -20 Degrees °F to -30 Degrees °F
