These smaller lunchbox Gala’s are the perfect size for a child’s lunchbox hence the name we have given them. Gala apples are one of the most popular sweet red coloured apples grown. Their dense flesh is creamy yellow and crisp, offering a mildly sweet flavour and flora aroma. Gala’s that are allowed to reach the peak of their sweetness on the tree will have a deeper red hue and a slightly sweeter flavour. As the saying goes 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away' please dont take this saying literally :-)
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.
