Ahhh. They certainly are. This particular apple
variety has a sweet flavour
somewhere between the tartness of a Granny Smith
and the cloying sweetness of some red apples
. Golden delicious is the second most popular
apple variety in the world. They have a firm flesh and are very juicy
. They have a dark green skin with freckles of light brown. As the fruit ripens
the skin becomes paler and more yellow.
They are excellent for cooking and are a good choice for cider.
Golden Delicious is also the name of a bluegrass band featuring Pete Krebs
