Way to tell when Gala are ripe?

I’ve got my first crop of Gala apples starting to color up a little. Is there a sign to look for when they are ready

, or just test them when I think they are getting close?


Mine had more pink than your pic when ripe. But Orangepipin description said first year product may not color up as well.


If you have more than one, you can check the color of the seeds when you pick your first one. Ripe fruit has dark brown seeds.


I am a state up and Gala are done late august. Maybe a little earlier for you.
