The Instacart guide to Royal Gala apples
About Royal Gala apples
The Royal Gala apple is a crisp and mildly sweet fruit with yellowish-orange skin and pink to red stripes. These apple varieties are allowed to remain on the trees just until they reach their peak sweetness but before their flavor begins to disappear. This helps develop that sweet, juicy flesh and pear-like flavor the Royal Gala apple is known for.
Royal Gala apples are Gala apples with more than half of their skin being red in color. That is the only difference between a Royal Gala and a Gala apple. Other than their color, they taste exactly the same. These fresh fruits make a great all-around snack. They are also full of flavor when made into applesauce or pressed into cider. Due to their sweet taste and floral aroma, they pair well with bold cheeses and full-bodied wines.
Gala apples, which are parents to the Royal Gala, originated in New Zealand in 1934. Apple breeder J.H. Kidd created a new apple variety by crossing a Kidd's Orange Red and a Golden Delicious. When Queen Elizabeth II visited New Zealand, she named this cross her favorite apple variety. After that visit, it was named Royal Gala in her honor. It was brought to the United States in the early 1970s and is now known as one of the country's best-loved apple hybrids.
This delicious red fruit is one of the most extensively grown apples throughout the world. They are related to both the Delicious and Cox Orange Pippin varieties of apples. Royal Gala apples grow well in both warm and cold climates, which is why they are available year-round at supermarkets and grocery stores worldwide. They are grown in the southern hemisphere in New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina, Chile, and Brazil, and in the northern hemisphere in the United States, England, France, Belgium, Slovenia, Holland, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, and Poland.
