Although the Crimson Gold is a Crab apple hybrid, it is larger than most crab apple varieties and good quality fruits will actually be almost twice the size of crab apples. The shape of the fruit is rounded and oblate. Its coloring is almost solid red when mature, with tones of ruby and blush and just a hint of yellow around its stem end. Thus, the name Crimson Gold can be misleading if one is looking for a true golden apple. The fruit's cream colored flesh is firm, succulent and crisp. Its flavors, robust and both sweet and tart.
Crimson Gold apples are available during fall and winter months.
The Crimson Gold is a cross between two heirloom apple varieties, the Yellow Newtown apple and an Esopus Spitzenburg. The Crimson Gold is unique to the general market as one will rarely find it alongside the eleven ubiquitous varieties that make up 90 percent of the apples found in grocery stores almost year round. The Crimson Gold, like thousands of other varieties of apples, is slowly becoming irrelevant. Modern pomologists (fruit breeders) breed apples for consistency in appearance, shelf-life, global shipping capabilities, flavor and texture. Crimson Gold apples may have little commercial exposure, but thanks to their Newtown apple heritage, they are cultivated and harvested as a processing apple for the production of apple cider.
