The last apple of the year to be harvested, Gold Rush are sweet-tart and have a very complex fruity flavor. They are a bit more tart when they are first harvested, but quickly develop an excellent and unique aromatic sweet flavor after several weeks of refrigeration, and they will keep for many months!
They have a great firm and crisp texture which is a joy to crunch into, and they do not brown very quickly when cut. The rich flavor makes a truly unique and delightfully flavored varietal cider which has a fantastic sweet-tart ratio, making it excellent for drinking fresh or to use for hard cider making.
Gold Rush are excellent for all uses. They are great for out-of-hand eating, and also make prize-winning pies, delicious apple crisps, wonderful applesauce, and are perfect for making dehydrated slices.
