Grimes Golden – West Virginia, USA 1804

The Grimes Golden was found at a cider mill and nursery established by John Chapman back in the early 1800’s. Rich, spicy, tangy, sweet flavor that’s crisp and sharp. Simply unforgettable in a simple light yellow flesh. More complex flavor than its offspring Golden Delicious. Direct marketers seek out this fruit due to its superior dessert quality. Not as common as it once was, but you will still find it here and there, and is definitely one to try. Excellent pollinizer with a long bloom period. Best grown in warmer climates.
