Ginger Gold™ are medium to large-sized apples, with thin skin that ripens to golden yellow.
Inside, they have crisp, firm, white, juicy flesh. The flavour is a balance of tart and sweet, and is spicy as well.
The apples can be picked while the skin is still green, before it has turned yellow.
An American Protected Plant variety, PP #7063.
Excellent for fresh-eating; can also be used for salads, baking and sauce.
The flesh is slow to brown in the air when cut open.
Stores up to six months.
Ginger Gold Apples were developed from a chance seedling found in the orchard of a Clyde and Ginger Harvey of Livingston, Nelson Country, Virginia, USA, after hurricane Camille uprooted Winesap trees around it in 1969.
