My Experience

If you are the laid-back type or one that needs to chillax, then you’ll love Gala apples. They are as mellow as it comes for apples, with a floral aroma and simple sweetness with hints of vanilla.

Gala is a great snacking apple and ideal for chopping and adding to a salad. It’s not the best apple for baking but freezing or juicing are great uses for Gala apples.

My Story

Gala apples were discovered in New Zealand in 1934 by orchardist J.H. Kidd. They are a cross between Golden Delicious and Kidd’s Orange Red apples. They made their way to the U.S. in the 1970s and were one of the first new apple introductions in a long time!

Gala is currently the top apple variety grown in the U.S. and you’ll find it easily at grocery stores. There are many different strains of Gala grown today so its coloring ranges quite a bit. The Royal strain was named after England’s Queen Elizabeth II praised the apple!

My Story

Gala apples were discovered in 1934 by New Zealand orchardist J.H. Kidd, and are a cross between Golden Delicious and Kidd’s Orange Red, an English favorite. They were introduced for commercial production in 1965, and made their way into the U.S. market in the 1970s. With a mildly sweet flavor and long availability window, this apple is one of today’s most popular varieties. Galas are among the top 3 apple varieties grown in Washington State.
