A high quality apple that is crisp, juicy and sweet with a honey-like flavor. The apple is golden to yellow-green, with a reddish-bronze blush. Honeygold is great for fresh eating and cooking - it makes a no-sugar apple pie. Exceptional storage qualities.

Parentage: Golden Delicious x Haralson.

Keeps 3-4 months, exceptional storage qualities.

Bruises very easily. A very winter hardy variety, said to be hardy to -50°.
