An offspring of Golden Delicious and related to the Cox Orange, this trees does well in cold climates. It's crunchy with intense flavour and a balance of acidity that lends itself to either eating fresh or sauces in the kitchen. This apple also keeps up to 6 months in cold storage, reaching full flavour about a month after harvest.
