Apple Varieties in Virginia:

Ginger Gold Apples

The Summer Apple That Tastes Like Fall


Get a jump on autumn apple sales with an apple that has the succulent bite and rich taste of just harvested fall apples. Only fresh Virginia Ginger Gold apples are available for retailers from Mid August through October.

 

Virginia's Own Apple
If the name Ginger Gold is unfamiliar, that's because it is a recent addition to the list of apple varieties. It was discovered growing among the twisted uprooted trees in a Virginia orchard in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its ancestors are the Golden Delicious and Albermarle Pippin apples.
