The first Gala apple was grown in New Zealand – it was created by combining a Golden Delicious apple with a Kidd’s Orange Red apple. Crisp and sweet, Galas are a very versatile apple, and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes, or enjoyed just as they are.
We look for apples with firm, smooth skin – our apples are often a funny shape, and may have cosmetic blemishes, but knowing that this does not affect the nutritional benefits or flavour of the fruit, we are more than happy to enjoy our tasty yet ugly apples.
Apples are a good source of fibre and Vitamin C, and contain an impressive range of phytonutrients. Many of the nutrients are concentrated in the skin of apples, so be sure to enjoy the whole fruit – including the skin – to get the most nutritional benefit.
Keep your apples crisp and delicious by storing them in the fridge.
