New Crop Organic Gala Apples • Worthy of Celebration
The New Zealand fruit growers who first developed the Gala Apple back in the 1920's must have really loved their little Pippin/Delicious hybrid. After all, they gave it a name that pretty much insisted on celebrating with every bite. And celebrate we should! Our just-harvested, fresh crop Galas only had to travel from the state of Washington.
Organic Gala Apples are heart-shaped fruit with distinctively colored skin – yellow-orange with red striping. They're among the softer-eating apples, yet still crisp, making them good snacks for adults and kids alike. They're excellent for baking (did someone say pie?), delicious in garden salads – they bring with them a sweetness and crunch that's a great companion to greens and such – and pretty near perfect sautéed with sausages like our Bavarian Bratwurst. And, like all apples, Organic Gala Apples are good for you; among other things, 20% of the daily value of dietary fiber is in every apple.
One last reason to celebrate is our price of $2.49 for a two pound bag – there are about seven good-sized apples in each bag. So go on, throw a party, and make Organic Galas your guests of honor. You'll find them in our fresh produce section.
