Hudson’s Golden Gem

A world-class dessert apple discovered as a wild seedling growing along a fence row at the Hudson Nursery in Tangent, Oregon, in 1931. A large apple, very conical in shape, with a dull yellow russet skin. This russet skin contributes to its disease resistance, especially to apple scab. The yellow flesh is very crisp, juicy and sugary with a somewhat nutty flavor. The fruit hangs on the tree well into winter and can be stored for several months. Ripens in October.
