Gala Apple

Gala Apple


The first Gala tree was produced from a cross between Golden Delicious and Kidd´s Orange Red in New Zealand in the 1930´s and today are the top produced apples in the US. The variety has an early harvest date and is generally smaller than other varieties so is great for kids and for snacking. On the inside the apples are firm and crisp and are vertically striped overall orange in colour but in Prince Edward Island, the gala´s usually develop a deep red colour due to the cool nights. The Royal strain of Gala was named after Queen Elizabeth II praised the apple!


Gala apples have a mild, fruity, and floral flavour and a crisp, fine-grained texture suited as an all-purpose variety for fresh and cooked preparations.
