Ozark Gold Apples

Ozark Gold are large-sized apples, with bright, waxy yellow skin.

Inside, they have juicy, firm flesh with a sweet taste with very little tartness to it.

The fruit ripens about three weeks earlier than Golden Delicious (one of its parents.)

The tree is hardy, and starts bearing fruit when young, but it tends to be a biennial bearer.

Cooking Tips

For fresh-eating.

History Notes

Ozark Gold Apples were developed at the Missouri State Agricultural Experimental Station from a cross between Golden Delicious apple and an experimental apple named "A1291" which had Ben Davis parentage in it. Introduced 1970.
