Autumn Gala

Autumn Gala
(Harry Black Cv.) PP#12,842

The first late-season Gala selection to be introduced. 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 traditional Gala strains are harvested. Fruit color is best described as orange-red and overall quality is similar to that of traditional Gala. Fruit is very firm and dense and exhibits very little stem cracking, making it a better keeper than traditional Gala. Autumn Gala provides the opportunity to extend the Gala harvest into late September/early October.

Pollination Charts

Many fruit tree varieties are not self-fertile. In order to have successful pollination, it may be necessary to have two different varieties of tree.
