True to its name, Golden Delicious delights in both appearance and taste. Its color ranges from yellow-green to honey-blonde, often with tawny freckles dappling its cherub cheeks. The flavor is remarkably sweet and rich, making it an excellent choice for salads, apple sauce, and apple butter. Golden Delicious keeps well in cold storage, retaining its freshness and flavor for up to 5 months after harvest.
Golden Delicious is a chance seedling thought to be a hybrid of Grimes Golden and Golden Reinette. The original tree was discovered by a West Virginia farmer in the late 1800s and soon taken up by the Stark Brothers Nursery. It was marketed as a companion to the Red Delicious, though the two apples do not share any notable lineage.
