Organic Heirloom Grimes Golden Apple Tree

Out of stock
The Grimes Golden Organic Heirloom Apple, Malus domestica 'Grimes Golden', is considered one of the finest American apples ever. Grimes Golden originated in 1790 in Brooks Co., West Virginia where today a granite monument still stands in recognition of this outstanding apple! Grimes Golden is one of the parents of the widely popular Golden Delicious. The main characteristics of this apple are the clean dry finish, very slight russeting tendency, somewhat prominent attractive speckles on the skin and the slightly tall shape with a hint of ribs. The long stalk, which often remains attached to the fruit after picking, is generally a reliable indicator of a Golden Delicious. The fruit is medium to large, roundish to slightly oblong with tough yellow skin with occasional patches of russet. This aromatic apple is highly flavored with tender, crisp, juicy yellowish-orange flesh. Grimes Golden ripens September to October and is a good keeper.
