Galarina™ X-4982 CV. Apple on G.890 (Spring 2024)


A disease-resistant offspring of Gala that shows improved storage flavor. Also known as X-4982, Galarina.

This is a very grower-friendly apple. Highly tolerant of fireblight, scab, ceder apple rust and mildew, hardier than Gala, Galarina™ X-4982 cv. is upright-spreading, vigorous, and productive.

The mid-to late (Oct 10) fruit resembles Gala: it is smallish and flushed orange-red. The crisp, sweet flesh has a well-balanced, aromatic flavor, but unlike Gala, Galarina™ X-4982 cv. will preserve the nuances of its flavor in storage for up to four months. This apple even hangs well on the tree - for up to four weeks after harvest - and, if you can bear to leave them for the deer, it makes a great wildlife variety. Galarina™ X-4982 cv. is an all-round outstanding apple.

Galarina™ X-4982 cv. was developed in France and tested in Quebec. It is a cross of Gala and Florina (Querina).
