About Crimson Gold apples

The Crimson Gold apple has ruby-red skin with a yellow background visible around the stem and shaded areas of the skin on the outside. The crisp flesh has a cream color and an outstanding balance between tart and sweet. You can enjoy this apple as a snack or use it for baking as it retains its texture and shape at high temperatures. A peeled and sliced Crimson Golden apple makes a great addition to a cheese plate or antipasto platter. The Crimson Gold apple bakes well and also works well as a base for apple sauce.

The Crimson Gold apple was created by Albert Etter in 1944 when he crossed a crabapple and a regular apple. The small Crimson Gold apple was initially named the Little Rosybloom, but Etter died before completing the patent paperwork. After the Little Rosybloom trees were mislabeled in the orchard where they were growing, this apple variety almost disappeared. The apple was saved from near extinction when a single limb of a multi-grafted test tree was identified as the Rosybloom in 1970 and subsequently renamed Crimson Gold.

FAQs About Crimson Gold Apple

Yes. Like all produce grown outdoors, apples can have insects, dirt, and other debris on them that you should wash off before eating. Apples also create a natural wax-like coating. This milky-white coating helps protect against insects and moisture loss. This coating wipes off easily with a clean, dry cloth, restoring the apple's natural sheen.

Some growers will add a synthetic wax coating after picking to protect the apples from damage during storage and shipping. These secondary coats of wax usually contain compounds made from plant-based materials, but not always. A gentle scrub with cold water will remove any synthetic coating. It would be best if you only washed your apples when you're ready to eat them.

Yes. Like most apples, the skin of a Crimson Gold contains 50% more nutrients than the flesh alone. The phytonutrients found in an apple's skin have been linked to many health benefits, including improved brain function, reducing inflammatory conditions, and fighting various forms of cancer.

Yes. Crimson Gold apples have no fat, cholesterol, or sodium and very few calories. Apples are a great source of dietary fiber and contain potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C. These vitamins help strengthen bones, boost immunity, and reduce the risk of stroke.
