Ripens: Late in the season (last apple to ripen in orchard)
Recommended Use: Eating/drying/baking (pies)
Taste: Very tart (tartest in orchard)
Tart and crunchy, this late season apple will sweeten with storage. Firm, and tart at first, Gold Rush do not brown quickly when cut which makes them excellent cooking and eating apples. The Gold Rush sugary taste stores through winter, becoming sweeter.
