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, 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. Standard trees grow 22 ft. tall. Li'l Big Trees grow 6 ft. tall. Plant in full sun. Premium trees include 2 oz. of Quick-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12-oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers. Li'l Big Deluxe also includes a tree support. Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 9392.

Why buy a Standard Deluxe or Li'l Big Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers. Li'l-BIG™ Deluxe fruit trees also include our innovative tree support, recommended for all Li'l-BIG trees.
