Mild & Sweet
Ever hear that Golden Delicious is the yellow cousin of the popular Red Delicious apple? Actually, they are related in name only, but this honey sweet apple is a special treat all on its own. Yellow with an occasional pink blush, Golden Delicious is “Apple Lite” – loved by those who prefer a mild, sweet flavor. There’s nothing tart about this apple….just a buttery, honey taste to please. Great for baking into apple pies and crisps mixed with more tart apples like Granny Smiths. It makes for a great flavor combo that tickles all your taste buds, all year round.
