Old-time flavor and great for homemade apple crisp! – that’s Ginger Golds. Harvested in August and early September, Ginger Gold Apples are one of the first new crop Apples available from Eastern USA orchards. Ginger Golds are an all-purpose apple that were a chance seedling discovered in the 1960s with what is believed to be Albemarle Pippen and Golden Delicious parentage. Under their greenish-yellow skin that is occasionally blushed with a spot of rouge is a crisp, fine-textured flesh that browns slower after slicing. The old-fashioned flavor is nicely tart and pleasingly sweet with a hint of fall spice – ideal for baking and sauces.
