[gohl-duhn] [suh-preem] [ap-uhl]
AVAILABLE:Golden Supreme apples are generally harvested in the fall. While they are best enjoyed by late winter, cold storage preserves these delicious apples with little decline in quality, making them available to you most of the year.
ABOUT:The delicious Golden Supreme was discovered as a chance seedling in 1890 in Clay County, W.Va., and was originally named Mullin's Yellow Seedling. Renamed in 1916, its parents are thought to be Golden Reinette and Grimes Golden. Golden Supreme Apples have a pale yellow skin, sometimes with a red blush. As one of the more mellow and sweet varieties, all-purpose Goldens are great for eating out of hand, baking and salads. Golden Supreme Apples are one of the most popular apple varieties in the world with its agreeable taste, texture, aroma and appearance, they’re a “must have” for any apple lover.
TASTE & RIPENESS:Golden's crisp, pale yellow flesh resists browning, making it a good choice for salads and other dishes. Being one of the sweeter apple varieties, cooks, note that you can reduce the amount of added sugar when making pies with Goldens. Apples are harvested at their peak, and then put into cold storage to maintain that perfect level of ripeness. When you receive delicious Golden Supreme apples from The Fruit Company, they'll be ready to eat, no waiting required.
