Early-Ripening Apple

Ginger Gold Apple is an early-mid season ripening apple with exemplary qualities.  Plant one in an open area away from buildings, but where you can enjoy watching its progress toward each year’s delicious harvest.

The most popular feature of your Ginger Gold Apple tree is of course the fruit it produces.  In fact, Ginger Gold has become one of the most popular varieties of apple in recent years.  Renown for its early-harvest and high quality, Ginger Gold Apple is stand-out among the apple varieties available today.

Your Ginger Gold Apple is a lovely apple tree, beginning each spring with delicate white-pink blossoms.  When your Ginger Gold truly shines however, is in early-mid August.  The large, conical apples start out a pale green, but by mid-late August will mature to a lovely yellow-green, filling your tree’s branches with golden-hued fruit.  The smooth, firm skin of your Ginger Gold will catch the afternoon light and draw you in for a taste of that sweet, creamy flesh.  Its crisp texture makes this apple a delight to bite into, the taste enhanced by the mildly-tart essence that follows closely upon the initial sweet gush of flavor.

Your Ginger Gold Apple is delicious fresh, but also valued as a multi-purpose, cooking apple because it holds its shape well when cooked. It also doesn’t discolor as other apples do when cut, so it will be terrific for all your fruit salads and other dishes that use fresh apples.  As a raw apple, it also keeps longer than other early-season apples.

Ginger Gold Apple trees are semi-dwarf and can grow up to 15 feet in height.  They are heat tolerant and relatively hardy.  You’ll need a pollinator within 50 feet of your Ginger Gold, but it doesn’t require much else from you.  For a beautiful tree with delicious fruit, you can’t do much better than a Ginger Gold Apple!

*Excellent eating and cooking apple

Recommended pollinators: Fuji, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Red Delicious

Best apple ever! Review by i800711
This has to be the absolute best tasting apple ever!! Never want to eat a different type of apple again after eating a Ginger Gold!
Three years old and loaded with fruit! Review by John Cooper
Just an update for 2011: The Ginger Gold tree from Nature Hills is *absolutely loaded* with fruit this year! I have a 15-tree orchard and this one is out-producing all the other varieties that I planted a year earlier. I'm very pleased and going to purchase another tree. I wish I had room for even more of these trees.
Ginger Gold does well in Western NC Review by John Cooper
I purchased a semi-dwarf Ginger Gold from Nature Hills in the spring of 2008, and I've been very pleased. The tree is over eight feet tall now, very full, and well anchored. Best of all, it bore five apples this year - one of them almost 4" in diameter! I estimate that the fruit will be ready to eat in late July where I live. Thanks, Nature Hills!
Sweet wonderful Ginger Gold Review by Janet Reeder
The only time I have seen this apple was when I picked up a semi-truck load of apples in Yakima, WA several years ago. I had been delayed and the packers gave me an extra crate of apples which happened to be Ginger Golds. They said they were just starting to grow them and they were not commercially available yet. The skin was almost non-existent and the taste was exquisitely sweet from the fairly firm textured apple. I have been looking for them ever since. And I am on the list to be notified when Nature Hills gets them in.
Refreshing Ginger Gold Review by bill41857
Ginger Gold has a light tang, is softer to the bite, is satisfying and leaves your mouth feeling refreshed, clean. In contrast, Granny Smith is harder to the bite, tougher skin, more juice, sharper, less subtle. Ginger Gold has a quiet golden taste that is faintly haunting. [p.s. It is named after Ginger, a woman.]
