*from Wikipedia: Ginger Gold is famous as the apple that Hurricane Camille brought forth. Camille brought devastating floods to Nelson County, Virginia in 1969, and the orchards of Clyde and Frances "Ginger" Harvey were badly washed out. In recovering the few surviving trees around the edge of one Winesap orchard, another tree was found which Clyde Harvey recognized as being different. It was planted with the rest, but was found to produce yellow rather than red fruit. An extension agent identified the parents as Golden Delicious, Albemarle Pippin, and some other unknown variety. The variety was eventually named after Clyde Harvey's wife.
When compared to a Golden Delicious, this apple is more tart, with a milder apple flavor.
I was surprised to find such nice looking apples at Wal-Mart, plus a variety I haven’t heard of before. They’re so good, I hope you can find some near you. Not only do they taste great, they are beautiful as a centerpiece on the table in this wire basket I found at Goodwill and the tray I painted.
