Gingergold Apple Scion Wood

This apple is one of our favorite fresh eating apples. The debate is always “does it taste of ginger or not.” The wife of the man who developed this apple was named Ginger and the theory is that is where he got the name. That said, I’ve taken this to chefs and had them taste it without knowing the name and they reported that it tasted of ginger. It’s possible that both are true and that’s what we’re choosing to believe. These apples are one of the most challenging apples to grow well under organic conditions as they are prone to every disease and attractive to every bug and since we spray only strictly narrow spectrum organic approved sprays we’re challenged to deal with the many different insects that love these particular apples. We figure that every year these will improve as we figure out how to best care for them. These are one of the few apples that naturally lack the enzyme that causes browning. These are an early apple, we pick them in early August.
