Gala Apple


Gala Apple

Many people consider Gala the perfect apple - it's not too sweet, not too tart, not too grainy and not too crisp.  It's popularity as an all rounder apple is second to none.  While you may be passionate about Pink Lady apples, Golden Delicious or Granny Smiths, you gotta like a Gala!


ORIGIN:  We source our Gala apples from Brazil and France, depending on the time of the year.  On their journey from Brazil to Ireland, we keep Temp Tale thermometers in with the apples to ensure they are being kept at just the right temperature.


NUTRITION:  An apple a day really does keep the doctor away!  Studies have proven that people who ate an apple a day regularly as part of their diet, suffered considerably less heart disease than those who did not!


TIP:  Although it is tempting, try to avoid storing apples and oranges together in the fruit bowl, as they can react to each other to accelerate ripening.
