Golden Supreme

Flavor: Sweet, aromatic, low acid

Approximate Ripening: Early September

Uses: Salads, saucing, baking, cider, eating

Trivia: Two states lay claim to the discovery of Golden Supreme.  Idaho says the apple originated there around 1960.  West Virginia shoots back that, no, it really came from Clay County way back in 1890, when the apple was known as Mullin’s Yellow Seedling.  Somebody isn’t telling the truth.

Notes: Golden Supreme has a mildly sweet flavor somewhat reminiscent of a peach.  Because Golden Supreme is resistant to browning, it does really well as a garnish to salads.  It’s also great to use for baking when you don’t want a particularly strong apple taste overpowering the baked goods.
