Out of Season Goldrush Apple Tree

Goldrush Apple Tree

Keeps Its Fantastic Flavor All Winter!

One of the best keeping apples ever! Keeps in the refrigerator until June of the year following harvest. Retains crisp texture and, like fine wine, Gold rush's flavor gets even better with time. Exceptional for fresh eating; out of this world for pies and cider! Quick to bear, often in its second year. Good disease resistance. A real winner! Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 9392.
  • Zone 5 - 8 (-10° F.).
  • Height 22 feet for standard, 6 feet for Li'l BIG.
  • Shade Required Full Sun
