Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple


Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple

Fall. AD Hudson’s Wholesale Nurseries, Tangent, Ore., 1931. A wild seedling discovered in a fence row and introduced soon afterward.

A truly fine dessert variety of unique appearance, exceptional flavor, and sweet juicy crisp smooth firm-but-melting yellow pear-like flesh. Highly recommended for those who love to eat their apples out of hand. Nearly everyone loves the flavor after a single bite.

Magnificent medium-to-large distinctly conical and beautifully russeted long-stemmed fruit. Skin a soft yellow-tan overlaid with a fine weave of light and dark browns. A favorite in Oregon, more recently gaining notice practically everywhere apples are grown. Stores several months.

Productive scab-resistant tree resists powdery mildew and fireblight. Blooms mid-late. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
