Galas have gained popularity among consumers in the past 15 years and are ideal for snacking. The Gala variety was introduced to the market in 1965, as a cross of Cox’s orange pippin and Golden Delicious and was developed by New Zealand plant breeders. The Gala, being one of the relatively recent introductions, sometimes is called a "gourmet apple”. Their development was specifically aimed at the segment of the public that has been demanding better flavor in store-bought apples.
