Autumn Gala Apple
Fruit is very firm and dense and exhibits very little stem cracking, making it a better keeper than traditional Gala. Autumn Gala was selected by Harry Black from a limb sport of Kidd’s D-8 Gala at his Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, Maryland. This late Gala matures up to five weeks after the traditional Gala strains are harvested. It is orange-red and similar to the traditional Gala. Autumn Gala provides the opportunity to extend the Gala harvest into late September/early October.
