Description:

Gala apples are a mild-flavored, all-purpose fruit. They have a sweet taste and a satisfying crunch that makes them a favorite among adults and children alike. Originally grown in New Zealand, they've steadily increased in popularity since their introduction into the market in the 1960s. They're also known as Royal Gala Apples after Queen Elizabeth II who pronounced them her favorite after visiting New Zealand.

What is the Best Raw Use of Gala Apples?

Because this fruit has a crisp, firm flesh, it lends itself well to a variety of uses. It's ideal for snacking whole or cut into slices for use with your favorite fruit dips. Try pairing with caramel, peanut butter or yogurt for a hearty and nutritious treat after school or work or when midnight cravings for something sweet hit. Other raw uses include using them in salads or blended into juices and smoothies. They also make fun appetizers. Just slice into thin rounds, remove the seeds and top with cheese, sausage, bacon or ham. Drizzle with your favorite dip for the perfect finish.

Can You Cook with Gala Apples?

Royal Gala apples are suitable for cooking and baking. You can cook them down into applesauce or slice them up for use in pies, breads and tarts. To make a pie or tart filling, peel and slice the apple into uniform pieces and toss with lemon juice to prevent browning. Add brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg to taste and you'll have a filling suitable for a variety of pie recipes.

What Color are Gala Apples?

Gala Apples are a cross between Golden Delicious and Kidd's Orange varietals. This gives them a distinctive color pattern. The base or background is yellow and they feature red and orange. They also fall on the sweeter end of the flavor spectrum because of the varieties they come from.
