Gala apples, large, red and yellowish with a slight stripey pattern

These Gala apples were for sale in the Newark, Delaware Farmer's Market for 99 cents a pound. They are marked USA, and I suspect they are from Washington state.

While I enjoy the aroma and texture of Gala apples, I find them to be significantly too sweet for me; I prefer McIntosh, Pink Lady, and other slightly less sweet varieties. This particular batch of Gala apples was also a bit on the large side, which I find is a chronic problem with apples shipped around the U.S. from the Pacific northwest.
