One of the first commercial varieties to ripen. Large conic-round classic Delicious shape with smooth waxy yellow skin and often a gentle red blush. Cream-colored juicy crisp flesh is a bit sharper than Golden Delicious but still quite sweet for an early apple. Great for salads because slices are slow to brown. One of the lone surviving trees on the edge of Clyde and Frances “Ginger” Harvey’s Winesap orchard after Hurricane Camille flooded the area. The fruit turned out yellow—different from all the rest in the orchard—and was determined to be a Golden Delicious seedling. Blooms midseason. Z4.
