Gala is a beautiful early-season apple to be lovingly ogled and then consumed on the spot. It's considered a "sub-acid" fruit because it's sweet in a fresh, rather than cloying, way. You'll enjoy gala's balance of richness and bright flavor highlights. The gala has achieved remarkable popularity in a short time. It has moved from small basket displays in the early 1990s to entire end displays on the produce stand. Gala is an import from Australia but grows well in North Carolina. Gala is fast becoming a customer favorite because of its firmness and sweetness. EZ Pick Fruits are pruned to grow such that the branching starts at about knee level and they are generally finished in a 'vase-shaped' or open style. This allows better fruit access and heavier fruit production. Additionally, you will be able to chose how high you want your fruit tree to be at it's maturity. After harvesting, simply cut back the scaffolding 2 feet below the desired height you want and, when the tree goes dormant, do the cross branch pruning. It is as simple as that!!
