General Information: If the name Ginger Gold is unfamiliar, that's because it is a recent addition to the list of apple varieties. It was discovered growing among the twisted uprooted trees in a Virginia orchard in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its ancestors are the Golden Delicious and Albermarle Pippin apples.
It has a crisp texture and excellent taste. Greenish gold skins with a slight blush. The Ginger Gold is a great all around apple, it doesn't discolor when cut, maintaining crisp white flesh - a natural for salads, slices and chunks or garnishes. Great as a snack eaten out of hand.
