DESCRIPTION

Ginger Gold is a sweet, tangy, and juicy apple. Ginger Gold is round with a smooth green-yellow skin and a slight red blush. Ginger Gold is an excellent multi-purpose eating and cooking apple; it also excels as a salad apple, as the crisp, white flesh browns slowly when sliced. They are picked as early as late August.

HISTORY

Discovered in a Virginia orchard in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the late 1960s, Ginger Gold is a likely cross between Golden Delicious and Newtown (Albemarle) Pippin.

This apple is grown at 36 New England orchards
