Apples That Can Keep For Up to a Year!

Are you ready to have your mind blown? GoldRush Apples (Malus 'Co-op 38') can keep for up to a year in your refrigerator crisper and still taste super fresh. You read that right - pick one in the fall and still enjoy it a year later!

Even though GoldRush has been around for a while, it has largely flown under the radar except for a lucky few who gave it a shot. Every season, though, the secret gets out a little bit more. It won't be long and you'll be able to buy it in your local supermarket...but why wait? You can grow these amazing apples in your home orchard right now!

The golden yellow/green/red blush skin hides a rich yellow flesh. They have a complex taste - sweet, tart, spicy, cidery. Some say it's like a classic Golden Delicious with hints of pear, spice, and citrus. Doesn't that make your mouth water?

The real treat though, is, that it keeps for all winter. It is great for hot apple crisps in the coldest, darkest months of the year. It has as refreshingly crisp a bite at Easter as it did at Thanksgiving. You don't have to do anything special, either. Just put them in a paper bag in the bottom of the fridge.

If you only have room for a couple fruit trees, make sure that GoldRush is one of them. Order yours from us today!

  • Loads of fresh sweet fruit that keeps for a full year!
  • One of the most complex flavors available in an apple
  • Performs well, even in cold climates
  • Great addition to the home orchard
