Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall. Tangent, OR, 1931. Discovered in a fence row and introduced soon afterward by A.D. Hudson’s Wholesale Nurseries. This is a truly fine dessert fruit of unique appearance and exceptional flavor. Sweet juicy crisp smooth firm-but-melting yellow pear-like flesh. A local favorite in Oregon, more recently gaining notice practically everywhere apples are grown. Popularized in Maine through the efforts of Mark Fulford. Magnificent medium-to-large distinctly conical russeted long-stemmed fruit. Skin a soft yellow-tan, overlaid with a fine weave of light and dark browns. Stores several months. Productive annual-bearing scab-resistant tree. Also resists powdery mildew and fireblight. Blooms mid-late. Z4-9.
