Pinkish-red stripes accent the Gala apple's yellow-gold skin. Aromatic, this popular apple offers a juicy crunch and a sweet, tangy flavor. Some Gala strains may be nearly solid red. Gala apples are considered to be one of the very sweetest.
Gala apples are available at Windrose Farms during the fall months.
Gala apples are a great snacking fruit as they are low in calories, high in water content and offer a fair amount of vitamins A, C and B. They also contain a dietary fiber known as pectin, which has been shown to lower cholesterol levels and help prevent heart attacks. They also contain trace amounts of boron, which has been touted for its ability to help build strong bones.
The delicate flavor and texture of the Gala apple shines in fresh preparations. They are perfect for use in fruit, green and chopped salads. Add diced gala to fruit salsas and chutneys. Slice and add to burgers, paninis and crostinis. Their sweet flavor becomes milder when cooked making them perfect in baked preparations when paired with stronger flavored apples such a Granny Smith, Arkansas Black, Pippin and Mutsu. The flavor of pears, winter squash, onions, pecans, turkey, curry, brie, cheddar and Swiss cheese complement Gala apples.
An apple staple in American markets, the Gala apple is native to New Zealand. A cross between Kidd's Orange Red and Golden Delicious, Gala apples were introduced into the United States in the early 1970s.
