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.
Galarina apples can be picked over a period of several weeks, a useful feature for the backyard grower.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Galarina was developed at the INRA research station in Angers, France, in the 1980s, from a cross between Gala and Florina apples. 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.
