Also known as: Golden Sweeting, Early Golden Sweet, Summer Sweet
An extraordinarily sweet apple, so sweet that Lee Calhoun says the “first bite can be a shock.” It has no acid to balance the sweetness, so eating Golden Sweet can be like eating a tablespoon of honey. It originated in Connecticut, but details of its origin are unknown. It was once quite popular in the South and widely sold by Southern nurseries. Fruit is medium to large with thin, smooth waxy yellow skin. The sweet yellow flesh is firm, juicy, and aromatic. Ripens mid to late fall.
