Over the last 25 years, the Gala has surpassed Red Delicious as the most widely grown and consumed apple variety in North America. Many variants of this excellent apple have been developed over the years including “Tenroy, Scarlett and Galaxy”, along with an earlier strain, (and certainly the most famous) — the “Royal” Gala. If you’re looking for a nice, easy eating apple, the Gala is hard to beat. Sweet, crisp and juicy off the tree, this apple also has a very pleasant, almost floral aroma. The Gala is easily identified by its attractive peach–coloured striping.
