Malus ‘Grimes Golden’- Heirloom Apple – 5-Gallon


Found by Thomas Grimes in West Virginia, in 1804, ‘Grimes Golden’ is believed to be one of the parents of ‘Golden Delicious’. Roundish or slightly oblong in form, the fruit is small to medium in size. The yellowish flesh is crisp and tender, with extraordinary spicy, sweet flavor. A good all-purpose dessert and cooking apple, it was popular for the making of hard cider in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It tends to overcrop and must be heavily thinned to maintain fruit size. Self-fertile and an excellent pollinator for other varieties. Somewhat resistant to fireblight and cedar apple rust. ‘Grimes Golden’ ripens in late September and stores very well.
