Ginger Gold is sweet, tangy, and juicy. 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.
