Author's Comments

Golden Delicious apples are apples for all seasons and all reasons. It is the best all purpose apple, ideal for cooking as well as fresh eating. They are golden to light yellow-green in color, sometimes with a pink blush. Goldens are juicy with a rich, mellow, mildly sweet flavor and tender, crunchy texture. They keep their shape when cooked or baked. When cut, Goldens stay white longer than other apples. The tender, thin skin doesn't have to be peeled in recipes.
