A Gingergold Apple ready to be picked at McDougal Orchards

About the Gingergold apple

Gingergold was discovered as a chance seedling growing near a Golden Delicious orchard in Virginia in the 1960s. It is possibly a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Pippin. The color, shape, and distinctive long stalk all identify it as a relation of Golden Delicious, yet it has a much earlier season – ripening in mid/late August. It is a good keeper and will last several weeks in the fridge. It is equally good for eating fresh or processing. Gingergold is generally considered one of the best early-season apples, we certainly think so!
