GOLDEN DELICIOUS

Golden Delicious

The Golden Delicious is an apple variety that popped up all on its own in West Virginia. Its parentage is unclear, but it is most likely related to the Golden Reinette or the Grimes Golden. The Golden Delicious is a medium to large apple with a broad and elongated, conical shape. As the name suggests, this golden honey is a firm yellow colour, sometimes accompanied with a pink splash if cool nights immediately precede harvesting. Golden Delicious flesh is white and crisp, with lovely mellow flavours that linger on your palette. The Golden Delicious is great on its own, in salads, pies, sauces, and definitely baked. The slices keep their shape in pies!
