Golden Delicious
Reviewed By: Steve (CDA, ID)
"The original is one of best tasting apples in the world! Problem is 95% of grocery stores carry genetically modified version, bred to not bruise and have brighter coloring. This apple was once a legend until Paul Stark, back in 1914 traveled so deep into West Virginia he had to switch from train to horseback, but he found the apple a lot of folks had heard about but never thought really existed. He cloned the tree after paying what would be around half a million dollars today, to the property owner. The original Golden Delicious Apple favorite eating and baking apples had a unique spicy goodness off the tree 4.5 rating, todays store fresh 3, sale price 2."
