Product Description

We have New Zealand to thank for this great-tasting import. Large fruits are striking with red-orange streaks over a golden background. Crisp, white flesh has a delicious, tangy-sweet flavor. And now Gala Apples are easier than ever to grow since they're available as a Reachables® Tree! Reachables are compact trees that yield full-sized fruits. Plant them in your garden, orchard or even a container. They're easier to manage than full-sized trees—one person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree all without the use of a ladder! Please note: Because Reachables produce full-sized fruit on smaller trees, they require a tree support. Gala ripens in September.

Reachables® Deluxe - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit--How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

You will also want to remove any suckers coming from the rootstock. Unwanted shoots and suckers can be removed at any time. Also remove any crossed, crowded or inward-growing limbs in late winter or very early spring.
