The Instacart guide to Ginger Gold apples

About Ginger Gold apples

Ginger Gold apples have pale yellow skin with slight brownish-colored patches throughout. The russeting or blushing is a slight color variation and not a sign of age. This early season apple variety varies in size but is usually somewhat cone-shaped, with ribs and longer than average stocks. It ripens in mid-to-late August and is a relative of the Golden Delicious variety of apples. 

Ginger Gold apples have a flavor profile similar to Golden Delicious, with a mild sweetness and slightly more tart than Golden Delicious. The sharp flavor found in the Ginger Gold apple gives a minor note of spiciness, much like ginger root, hence the moniker. The sweet apple has fine-textured flesh that does not brown as quickly as other varieties when cut, making it a prime candidate for plating and food design. They are available from early summer to late fall and can remain fresh for a couple of weeks when stored correctly.

FAQs About Ginger Gold Apples

The Ginger Gold apple is an excellent candidate for pies or puree as applesauce but is not suitable for freezing. While other apple varieties such as the Golden Delicious, York Imperial, Granny Smith, and Rome Beauty maintain their consistency and texture when frozen, the Ginger Gold loses the texture and freshness that makes it such a beloved variety. The freezing and thawing process also dulls the tart, sweet, and spicy flavor. For optimal benefits, use the Ginger Gold apple at peak freshness. If you must freeze Ginger Gold apples, do so only after cooking or baking and thaw and use as soon as possible.
