Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple


Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple

Fall. AD Hudson’s Wholesale Nurseries, Tangent, OR, 1931.

A wild seedling discovered in a fence row and introduced soon afterward. A truly fine dessert variety of unique appearance and exceptional flavor. 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 local favorite in Oregon, more recently gaining notice practically everywhere apples are grown. Popularized in Maine through the efforts of Mark Fulford.

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