The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to Jonagold. The Jonagold apple is a cross between Golden Delicious and the Jonathan. It first appeared in 1953 at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. This apple tends to be large in size and is tangy sweet with honey-like flavor notes. On the outside, Jonagold is crimson red flushed with yellow-green undertones. The flesh is a creamy pale yellow color. They have a shorter season than many apples, making them a real treat in the fall and winter months.
