Gala apples are covered in a thin yellow to orange skin, highlighted with pink to red stripes that vary in hue dependent upon maturity. Their dense flesh is creamy yellow and crisp, offering a mildly sweet flavour and flora aroma.
Gala apples are a great snacking fruit as they are low in calories, high in water content and offer a fair amount of vitamins A, C and B.
They also contain a dietary fibre known as pectin, which has been shown to lower cholesterol levels and help prevent heart attacks.
They also contain trace amounts of boron, which has been touted for its ability to help build strong bones.
