Ginger Gold

Ginger Gold is a sweet, tangy, and juicy apple. It 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. Ginger Gold is harvested as early as late August.

Discovered: 1969 Lovingston, Virginia

Parentage: Golden Delicious x Newtown Pippin (possible)

Harvest: Early Season
