Royal Gala ApplesRoyal Gala Apple

 

The first Gala apple tree was one of many seedlings resulting from a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Kidd's Orange Red planted in New Zealand in the 1930s by orchardist J.H. Kidd. Donald W. McKenzie, an employee of Stark Bros Nursery, obtained a US plant patent for the cultivar on October 15, 1974. The variety is also an increasingly popular option for UK top fruit farmers. It is a relatively new introduction to the UK, first planted in commercial volumes during the 1980s. The variety now represents about 20% of the total volume of the commercial production of eating apples grown in the UK, often replacing Cox's Orange Pippin.

Characteristics

Gala apples are small and are usually characterized red with a portion being greenish or yellow-green, vertically striped. Gala apples are fairly resistant to bruising and are sweet, grainy, with a mild flavor and a thinner skin than most apples. Quality indices include firmness, crispness, and sweetness.

 

Royal Gala can be eaten fresh, included in salads or used as a cooking apple and is particularly suited to sauce.

 

Gala is a round sweet apple that fits nicely into a child’s hand. It is dense, sweet, aromatic and juicy with a white flesh.
