DID YOU KNOW?
Royal Gala is certainly one of the most successful varieties to ever come out of New Zealand. Originated in 1934 by New Zealand orchardist J.H. Kidd, resulting from a cross between Golden Delicious and Kidd’s Orange Red, an English favorite. They were introduced for commercial production in 1965. Productions in both hemispheres enable a year round supply.
