When you eat a Golden Delicious that was picked at the peak of ripeness off your own tree compared to the green-ish ones you are used to from the grocery store, your mind will be blown. This all-purpose apple has a conic shape and golden-yellow skin that can develop a pretty blush and some russeting. The flesh is yellow, juicy, rich and pleasantly sweet. Makes great pie and cider and stores well. Ready mid-late fall.
This variety came about on a farm in WV in 1890. Likely a seedling of Grimes Golden. It was the #2 apple in the US for many decades. Annual, heavy bearer. An excellent pollinator for the orchard.
