Golden Delicious apples are pale green to golden yellow in color and speckled with small lenticels (spots). They are small to medium in size, and tend to be conical or oblong in shape. Golden Delicious apples are firm, crisp, and white-fleshed. These apples have a balanced sweet-tart aromatic flavor, which has been described as honeyed. The flavor varies depending on where these apples are grown; in a cool climate, the amount of acid increases, actually creating a sweeter flavor. When grown in warmer areas, the acid content is lower, creating a milder flavor.
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.
Low in calories, Golden Delicious apples are a good source of soluble fiber, which has been proven to help lower cholesterol, control weight, and regulate blood sugar. They also contain vitamins A and C, as well as a trace amount of boron and potassium, most of which is located in the apple’s skin.
The sweet-tartness of the Golden Delicious means this apple is a good fresh eating variety. Fresh, raw apple slices may be added to green salads, fruit salads, or grain salads. Golden Delicious apples also have the necessary acid content and stability for baking. They can be baked into crisps, crumbles, tarts, cakes, galettes, and breads. Apple slices may also be cooked down into preserves and butters, or pureed into sauces and soups. The Golden Delicious pairs well with savory items, such as onions, cabbages, pork, cheeses and strong herbs. Add slices to top burgers and sandwiches. Finally, this versatile apple can also be juiced or dried.
The Golden Delicious has always been an easy apple to love. Besides being grown in commercial production, they are easy to grow at home, and taste great from the home orchard. The Golden Delicious is also the official fruit of West Virginia, where it was first discovered.
The Golden Delicious had its beginning in 1890 as a chance seedling on the Clay County, West Virginia farm of Anderson H. Mullins. Originally, it was sold under the name Mullins Yellow Seedling. In 1916, the rights to sell the apple were sold to Paul Stark of Stark Brothers Nursery and it was renamed the Golden Delicious. Today the Golden Delicious is found in apple growing regions around the world.
