Apple Varieties in Virginia:

Golden Delicious Apples

Golden Delicious Apples - The Virginia Apple Industry

A Golden Opportunity for Retailers

The flavor of Virginia Golden Delicious apples is exceptional and, because of an extended shelf life, these apples will last and last. The lightly textured green/gold skin of the Goldens protects the crisp interior and helps retain its sweet juiciness.

Great as a snack or a lunchbox treat, their firm flesh makes Virginia Golden Delicious apples ideal for salads, pies, applesauce, apple butter and anything else that calls for sliced or cooked apples.
