Types of Apples
Golden Delicious Apple:
Golden Delicious is a large, yellowish-green-skinned cultivar and very sweet to the taste. It is prone to bruising and shriveling, so it needs careful handling and storage. It is a favorite for salads, apple sauce, and apple butter.
Royal Gala/Gala apples are small and are usually red with a portion being greenish or yellow-green, vertically striped. Gala apples are fairly resistant to bruising and are sweet, grainy, with a mild flavor and a thinner skin than most apples. Quality indices include softness, sweetness, and lack of meal worms. Gala apples are sweet and aromatic, with a size that fits nicely into a child’s hands. It can be added in salads, or cooked, and is especially suitable for creating sauce.
The Fuji apple is an apple hybrid developed by growers at the Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki, Aomori, Japan, in the late 1930s, and brought to market in 1962.
