A baking extraordinaire, this all-purpose apple has the sweetness of honey and a mellow gingerbread spice that makes it great for snacking, too. It’s impressively flavorful, sweet and rich. Truly golden.
A crisp yet mellow apple with tender golden skin and a sweet, spiced flavor
Place of origin
Clay County, West Virginia
Unknown, perhaps the chance seedling can be traced to Golden Reinette and Grimes Golden
Apples naturally oxidize (aka turn brown) after they’re sliced and exposed to air. They are still safe to eat! But don’t look or taste as fresh. You can keep the brown at bay by dipping or spraying slices with a 3:1 water and citrus mixture.
