Gala is a red-orange apple with yellow striping, crunchy and juicy, with a sweet flavor. Well suited for snacking, salads, and baking, Gala is ready for picking in September. It tends to darken in color the longer it is stored.


Developed in New Zealand and introduced in 1934, the ever-popular Gala derives its genetic heritage from Cox's Orange Pippin and both Red and Golden Delicious. One of its offspring is Jazz. Gala is one of the most widely grown apples in the world.

This apple is grown at 42 New England orchards
