Inventory, lb : 0
The Shinano Gold apple is medium-large in size and has a beautiful smooth, yellow-gold skin, which gives this variety its name. The skin is resistant to bruising, and is rarely russetted. Inside, the flesh is fine-grained, juicy, and crisp, with an excellent sweet, sub-acid flavor. The taste has tropical notes of pineapple, pear, honey, and lemon. The flavor develops and sweetens during storage. In comparison to Fuji apples, Shinano Golds are more flavorful, and more acidic.
Shinano Gold apples are available in the fall and winter.
Shinano Gold apples are a Japanese variety of Malus domestica. This variety is a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Senshu, another Japanese apple, that is itself descended from the famous Japanese Fuji apple. European customers will find Shinano Gold apples marketed as Yello.
Apples are an excellent part of a healthy diet, with several beneficial nutrients, and lots of water content. One medium apple has about 17% of the daily recommended value of fiber, which is present in apples in both insoluble and soluble forms. Apples contain lower amounts of other nutrients, including the mineral potassium and Vitamin C and other antioxidants.
This variety works well as a dessert apple or in recipes that call for a sweet apple. Use Shinano Golds in chutneys or on cheese platters with strong, aged varieties like blue cheese or Parmesan. Pair with spices such as ginger and curry. Shinano Gold apples are an excellent storage variety; keep on the counter for a few days, or in the refrigerator for several weeks.
