Early Ripening Harvest With Spring & Fall Color

Dorsett Golden Apple, Malus domestica 'Dorsett Golden', is a fruit bearing tree with a lovely appearance and delicious fruit. Plant one in a sunny location near your patio where you can sit in its shade and watch your sumptuous harvest ripen.

Your Dorsett Golden Apple tree is one of the few low chill Apples (requiring less than 100 chilling hours). It was developed in 1954 in the Bahamas, and as such is particularly well-suited to warmer climates. You'll adore the pink-tinted, white blossoms that blanket your Dorsett Golden in spring, a delicate welcome to the coming summer. The blissful blooms soon transition to golden orbs of delectable fruit.

Each Dorsett Golden apple is medium to large in size, so not too big and not too small...just right for picking from your tree on a warm, summer day. Each Golden Apple features a green-tinted, yellow skin with the lightest splash of scarlet. The fruit presents an outstanding vision against the green foliage of the tree (and will be a welcomed addition for the fruit bowl on your kitchen table).

The Dorsett Golden Apple tree is an early season producer (ripening in June/July), so you'll be enjoying your harvest well before some of your neighbor's Apple trees have ripened for picking...and Dorsett Golden is as delicious as it is beautiful. The cream-colored flesh of your Apple is firm, juicy and sweet with the slightest hint of vanilla and sumptuous, tart undertones. Yum!

It has a semi-spreading nature with an upright, rounded form. Even as the harvest ends and autumn approaches, your Dorsett Golden's foliage brings out reds, yellows and orange hues for a lively send off to summer. Your Dorsett Golden is self-fruitful. It often fruits in its second year, so you don't even have to wait long to see results.

Dorsett Golden is a lovely choice in an Apple tree for your warm climate this year. Not only is it beautiful with spring flowers and a vibrant summer form, but it also produces an enticing harvest and spicy fall color. Why not try this award-winning apple variety for your home today!
