Gala Apple Tree is a red striped on golden skin apple that is well known and liked throughout the states.
From Golden Delicious crossed with Cox’s Orange Pippin.
Excellent quality, keeps very well. fresh off the tree is a totally different experience than buying from the store ones that have been sitting for months in cold storage.
Some self-fertile characteristics, but does better with another variety to pollinate. Hardy throughout Maine except far northern and western locations.
4-5 foot bare root tree lightly branched
We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube
Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.
Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.
I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’
We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.
Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.
Where we had ordered them last year to offer to you, Tree Pro started selling them on Amazon (of course) and they are cheaper and offer FREE Shipping. We still highly recommend them!
