Golden Delicious Apples
Inventory, lb : 0
Golden Delicious apples are pale green to golden-yellow and sometimes acquire a faint flush. An all-purpose apple, the flavors of these firm, crisp white-fleshed apples vary. Grown in a cool climate, the amount of acid in this apple increases, creating a sweeter flavor. In warmer growing areas, their acidity content is lower, which makes the flavor somewhat bland. Uniform in shape, this apple's subtly textured skin protects its juicy flesh and is so tender it doesn't require peeling. The determining factors for a cooking apple include a fairly sweet and intense flavor, higher acid vs. sugar content and it must maintain its shape.
Golden Delicious apples are available fall through summer.
The Golden Delicious apple is an important American variety of Malus domestica. It is a parent apple to many well know varieties, including the Gala, Ambrosia, Mutsu, Pink Lady, and Jonagold. While the exact parentage of the Golden Delicious apple is unknown, it is believed by many to be a relative of the Grimes Golden and the Golden Reinette. It is not, however, related to the red delicious apple.
