Galarina apple trees

  • Pick: Late-season
  • Flowering group: 3
  • Uses: Eat fresh 
  • Disease-resistance: Good

Galarina is, as the name suggests, a cross between Gala and Florina.

The fruit size and sweet flavor are similar to Gala, but it also inherits the wide-ranging disease-resistance of Florina. Poor disease-resistance has always been a weakpoint of Gala, so Galarina can be considered as an "improved" Gala.

GalarinaTM is a trademarked variety.

Order now for fall 2014 (warm zones) or spring 2015.

Pollination guide for Galarina

Galarina is in flowering group 3. Galarina is self-sterile and needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other apple trees.

How to grow Galarina apple trees

Although Gala is very widely planted, it is somewhat disease-prone and not ideal for the backyard grower. Galarina is far more disease-resistant, and can also be grown in colder climate zones than Gala - much of the development work was carried out in Quebec.



Historical details

Galarina was developed at the INRA research station in Angers, France, in the 1980s. However most of the North American field trials were carried out as part of the Quebec Apple Breeding Program, based at St. Jean sur Richelieu in Quebec, Canada.

GalarinaTM is a trademarked variety.
