Ozark Gold apples are a Golden Delicious type but earlier, firmer (perhaps due to Ben Davis parentage) and less russeting with unique spicy flavor. The Ozark Gold apple tree bears medium to large fruit with a firm, crisp texture. Ozark Gold apples are a delicate blend of yellow and orange colors. It is a juicy apple with mild acidity, sweet, honeyed. Definitely good for baking, but also a good dessert apple.
