Apple Royal Gala 500gm Certified Organic and sourced locally where possible. There is no doubt that for the Gala Apple as one of the most extensively grown apples in the world, there is an amazing linage. (and the parent apple to a few favourites; Jazz, Royal Gala and Pacific Rose.) Gala apples have a delightfully thin yellow to orange skin, characterised by pink to red stripes that vary in colour depending on when it was picked and how much sunlight filtered through the tree canopy. When biting into a Gala, the flesh is dense, creamy yellow and crisp. Best ripened on the tree, to reach the peak of their sweetness will have a deeper red colour and their flavour will reach its highest potential. In terms of availability, Gala Apples are available year-round, and lend themselves really well to all sorts of dishes including baked preparations, fruit salads and spicy chutneys.
