Crimson Gold is a new disease resistant cultivar harvesting the second week in September, just ahead of Golden Delicious.
The fruit colors nicely with a near full red-orange blush on a yellow background and the flesh is white, firm and juicy. Apples are medium in size with a sweet-tart flavor. Fruit has storage life of up to eight months. The trees have medium vigor and are very productive, so they should be thinned accordingly. Crimson® Gold is very resistant to apple scab.
A royalty of $1.25 is added to the base price of this tree.
