The 'Royal Gala' apple was developed as a cross between the Golden Delicious and a Kids Orange Red in NZ in the 1930's by NZ apple breeder James Hutton Kidd. ('Royal Gala' is a red mutation of the 'Gala' apple)

Royal Gala apples are harvested in late February and March, and are available until September. Regarded as one of the world’s finest apples - crisp creamy fine textured flesh, and sweet & juicy.
