Mildly Sweet & Crisp

A great choice for snacking,  this variety, a cross between Kidd’s Orange Red and Golden Delicious, originated in New Zealand. The Royal Gala strain was named in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, who deemed it her favorite during a visit to New Zealand. It was brought to the United States in the early 1970s and is now one of the country’s most popular apples. Crisp, juicy, and very sweet, Gala is ideal for snacking. Galas can vary in color, from cream to red- and yellow-striped.  It's got the mild flavor that "picky eaters" prefer, plus a striking bright yellow-red color that also makes it visually appealing
