The Crimson Gold apple tree is one of the best of the rediscovered Albert Etters’ apple gems. The Crimson Gold apple is a thin skinned apple bursting with bright, crisp, complex, sweet and tart flavor that will wake you up when eaten out of hand. Also creates a great lively fresh cider. Crimson Gold apple holds up well when baked or poached and creates delicious apple jelly. It’s the size between an apple and crabapple.
