GALA

The Gala variety apples are conical or conically oval. At chalice, ribbing can be noticed. The apples are well coloured, covered with marble-like orange or orange-red, bright flush, with smooth skin. The fruit has one visible disadvantage – it may easily crack at stalk; and this takes place when the ripe apples hang on trees too long or while it is heavily raining. Such fruit is not good for storing. The Gala apples are ready to be picked up in the 2 or 3 decade of September. Free from damage fruit can be stored well both in an ordinary refrigerator as well as in controlled atmosphere conditions.
