A Goldrush Apple ready to be picked at McDougal Orchards

About the Goldrush apple

GoldRush is an attractive, smooth-skinned modern dessert apple, specifically developed for scab-resistance. As a relatively new variety we do not have much experience yet, but it appears to be good at most of the things Golden Delicious is good at, such as keeping well and making excellent juice. The variety is derived from Golden Delicious as the seed parent, with crosses from several other research varieties including Winesap, Melrose, Rome Beauty and Malus floribunda – the latter being a well-known source of the Vf scab-resistant gene. We planted our Goldrush in 2015.
