Golden Delicious

What's it like?

It's a sweet apple that allows chefs to cut down on added sugar in recipes. It has many culinary uses in sauces, pies and baking, where its firmness helps hold its shape. It also has excellent mild, sweet flavor when eaten fresh and is also a popular inclusion in fresh apple cider. This honey sweet apple is a special treat all on its own.


The second most popular apple variety in the world, 'Golden Delicious' is thought to be a cross between 'Golden Reinette' and 'Grimes Golden'. It was discovered in Clay County, West Virginia in 1914 and was originally named 'Mullin's Yellow Seedling'. It is one of our most popular here at Stone Ridge Orchard.
