Uniquely shaped, beautiful and rare, this extremely hardy large light-yellow summer cooking and dessert apple is reminiscent of Yellow Transparent. The fruit is oblong or even rectangular in shape. Occasionally the large hollow core will be partially filled with a sweet nectar you can sip after halving the fruit. As the fruit ripens, the faint yellow deepens to a rich gold, hence the name Pomme d’Or (Golden Apple). Eat it fresh, and use it in summer pies. Makes a light golden-yellow mild-flavored chunky sauce.
Fruit explorer Gloria Seigars introduced it to John near St. Agatha, ME, in the fall of 1998. We are grateful she invited us to cut scionwood at her family orchard overlooking Long Lake. She believes her family brought the apple to Maine from Canada in 1870. Hardy enough for all northern districts. Long mid-late bloom season. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
