Virginia Gold

Virginia Gold: This apple is a cross between Newtown Pippin and Golden Delicious and was created in 1976 at Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, Va.) It has rated highly at apple tasting events at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home. With such great parents, both of which can be detected when eating, it is easy to understand why this apple is so highly praised. It is a beautiful yellow with a reddish-pink blush. The flesh is firm and has both an acidic and mildly sweet flavor. It is good for eating as well as cooking. It is susceptible to cedar apple rust. It ripens in early October and will store well, becoming sweeter with age.
