Golden Delicious

Golden Delicious is a North American  dessert apple, but it is now grown worldwide. It is one of those apples which has been used as a parent in many breeding programmes, as it has some very strong characteristics. It has a long storage life, very fertile, can put up with all sorts of  weather conditions, and flowers over a very long period in the spring. Unfortunately it is often picked too early and then the flavour suffers badly. This is why the imported Goldens often lack taste. Grown in the UK and picked late it will develop into a delicious eating apple. It does need thinning as it easily sets too heavily.
