Gala Apples

Quickly becoming the new top apple variety in the United States, Gala is mildly sweet and accessible year-round. Gala apples were discovered in New Zealand circa 1934 by Orchardist J.H. Kidd. A cross between Golden Delicious and Kidd’s orange red apples, the Gala boasts a sweet flavor with hints of vanilla and has a floral aroma. On the outside, Gala apples are round, a pale golden yellow background and stripy red blush covering it. On the inside, these apples are firm and crisp with a slight yellow to cream hue. Gala apples have an early harvest date, and are generally a bit smaller in size than most other apple varieties which means they are great for kids and for snacking.
