I have two 25 year old dwarf Red Gold trees which produced an extraordinary amount of apples this year. They are the best tasting apples you can imagine, sweet and juicy.

I've grown Red Gold for probably 20 years at my Tennessee home. The tree is loaded with small apples. I enjoy eating them straight from the tree. Excellent flavor.

This one gets a blue ribbon for being the sweetest tasting apple ever developed. Keeps for weeks in the refrigerator.
