Another new variety which we're growing in our orchards, and one we have high hopes for. You’ll enjoy experiencing this intense, spicy apple both as a fresh-eating winner and in your baked apple dishes. GoldRush is a naturally occurring disease-resistant apple (not to be confused with today's health-suspect GMO-process varieties), therefore needing fewer spray applications in the orchard (good for us, good for you!) With its firm texture, fabulous keeping qualities, and rush of flavor GoldRush is a great apple to rush to Kauffman's for.

The Adam's apple blogger puts his thoughts of what a GoldRush apple is like in colorful prose like this,"The flesh is yellow, firm, and crisp, still on the coarse side but more fine-grained than that of many yellow apples. Its flavor has the honeyed sweetness of a Golden Delicious, wedded to a pleasing tartness with a touch of acidity. The tension between these flavors is just right and there are fleeting hints of pear, citrus, and spice to keep things interesting. Plus a little metalic fizz on the tip of the tongue." (Emphasis added)
