'Hudson's Golden Gem'


The largest of the russets is Hudson’s Golden Gem, which was found by chance in Oregon and released in 1931.  This apple has a crisp, light-yellow flesh that is tender, sweet and juicy. The flavour has been described as Bosc pear-like, with a hint of nuttiness.  The apple shape is tall and eye catching.



 Mainly used for fresh eating and keeps quite well.  Good for juice and cider.



Late season (mid October)
