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.
