Ginger Gold Apples

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.

Ginger Gold Apple Tips

  • Refrigerate or use them quickly. Ginger Gold Apples are crisp when freshly picked, but too long at room temperature will quickly make them mealy inside. Keep them cold until you’re ready to use them – up to two week.
  • Select Apples that feel firm, plus are free from wrinkled skin, punctures and large bruises (flat discolored spots).
