Ginger Gold is an attractive early-season apple, ripening during July or early August in most areas. The skin is a golden green color, often with a sun-kissed flush.
Ginger Gold can be eaten fresh, and it is useful in the kitchen too. Like most early-season apples, the flavor is tart and refreshing, but there is some sweetness too, and Ginger Gold can arguably be considered as a very-early ripening Golden Delicious.
Ginger Gold has quite a wide climate range, but is particularly useful in warmer zones - including southern California and the southern states.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Ginger Gold is named after orchard owner Frances "Ginger" Harvey, who noticed the tree was one of the few survivors in the family orchard after Hurricane Camille hit Virginia in 1969. It was planted in a Winesap block but was subsequently found to be related to Golden Delicious and Newtown Pippin (also known as Albemarle Pippin). It was first propagated by Adams County Nursery.
