      Why haven’t I seen this apple since 2012? It’s the best apple I’ve ever eaten

      I discovered this apple last year at my local co-op, and fell in love. Firm, crisp, juicy (but not overly so) with an almost cinnamon aftertaste. Sweet, but not overly so. The fruit man said that it's a late fall apple, so they should be back soon. Fingers crossed!

      I bought autumn gold apples at the costco store in southern Cali a couple years ago and fell in love with them. Unfortunately, have never been able to find them since, where can they be found?

      This is hands down the best apple I have ever had. It seems to have a sweet pear taste mixed in with the apple. I am eating two a day.

      I think this may or may not be my favourite kind of apple, it's hard to tell from just the photos, I should go to the grocery store and buy this brand so that I can tell for sure. :P

      I just got a bag of Autumn Gold apples at the farmer's market in Wenatchee, and they are spectacular! Crisp and sweet, an outstanding apple that will probably become my favorite if I can continue to find it.
