Gala Apples and Apple Raisin Loaf Recipe
The gala apple is one of the most classic eating apples in the world. This is still one of my favorite apples at the orchard but I am a girl who loves sweet apples.
Approximate Ripening Date: August 30th
Flavor: This is a hard, juicy, sweet apple. It's great for fresh eating.
Baking: The gala will keep its shape when baked but I find that much of the flavor cooks out of this sweet apple. I much prefer it for fresh eating.
History: Golden Delicious x Kidd's Orange Red cross, developed in New Zealand in the 1920s.
