Goldrush Apple

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, Goldrush's flavor gets even better with time. The large, late ripening apples are exceptional for fresh eating—and out of this world for pies and cider! Quick to bear, often in its second year. Good disease resistance to scab, fire blight and mildew. A real winner! Best pollinators are Liberty, Fuji, Gala, Enterprise, Sundance and Pixie Crunch. Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 9392.

Now available in Reachables size! A Reachables tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. It's also easier to manage than full-sized trees. One person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables require a tree support.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
