History
The Gala apple has a royal heritage. Though foreign born, it grows very well in Virginia, which enjoys a royal heritage also. Gala is a cross of Kidd's Orange Red and Golden Delicious, developed in New Zealand in 1934 by J. Hutton Kidd. A strain of Gala was named "Royal Gala" after the apple was given to Queen Elizabeth II. She was so impressed with the apple, she ordered more. The Queen of Holland visited an orchard growing gala apples in 1971 and was impressed by their flavor.

A Word from Mother Nature on Shipping
Please note, that because we are dealing with a product of nature, we reserve the right to allow up to 2 weeks, to process an order. If your order needs to be delayed for any reason, we will notify you. We typically ship apples on Mondays and Tuesdays to avoid the shipment being held at a depot over the weekend. On some occasions, if we know that FedEx can deliver in less than 3 days, we may ship your order on Wednesdays.
