Ginger Gold

Sweet
Description

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.

History

Discovered in a Virginia orchard in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the 1969, Ginger Gold is a likely cross between Golden Delicious and Newtown (Albemarle) Pippin.
