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.
