Outstanding modern dessert variety, also excellent for cooking. Very large (even huge) juicy sweet richly flavored roundish ribbed fruit, mostly covered with faint red stripes over a light green ground color. Pure white crisp fine-textured flesh. Originally released as a Northern Spy replacement for the processing industry at a time when the demand for Northern Spy was high but the variety was no longer being planted. Spigold never really caught on with commercial growers, but it’s widely considered to be an all-purpose backyard apple for the connoisseur.
Ripens a week before Northern Spy and keeps until midwinter. Strong upright grower requires training early on to develop good limb structure. Triploid: will not pollinate other varieties. Blooms late. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
