The Gala apple – in translation means “festive”, is the variety, bred by breeders of New Zealand in the late 50s of the 20th century.
The fruit has an average size and weight of 115 – 145 g, not exceeding 170 g. The main color is yellow or green-yellow. Apples are very juicy and crispy, taste sweet and sour. The flavor looks like a walnut caramel. The Gala apple is one of the top three most popular varieties. The Kids Orange variety and the Golden Delicious apple tree were used to create a new fruit.
In the early 1970s, a new variety began to be cultivated worldwide. The Gala apple was bred in New Zealand, but it was the most common in the United States, Latin America and Europe.
At first, the Gala variety was unpopular among people through its ugly appearance and small size. But it got the attention of the gardeners. After that, it began to improve and as a result we managed to get a lot of clones, which received more presentable appearance and better product quality.
