Literally descriptive name, this apple both ripens early and is a golden yellow color. It is nearly perfectly round with a yellow hue that softens to gold as it matures. The Earligold Apple was discovered in Selah, WA as a chance seedling- therefore its parentage is known. In the Central US, this apple ripens in July but later so along the coasts. It is medium to large in size with bright green skin. This skin brightens to yellow with a slight orange blush on the sun side of the fruit. Like most early apples this should be picked slightly before ripeness to attain the balanced tart flavor. The flesh is creamy white and crispy when picked early. 

Good for dried apple rings as it holds its shape when dehydrated. Current rootstock availability has this scion (upper part of a grafted tree) on M7. This semi-dwarf tree grows to heights of 13-15’ and bears annually. The rootstock adds some level of hardiness to the apple tree but the Earligold Apple is hardy to Zone 5. Unlike other apple trees- this tree is self fertile and does not need a fellow apple around to pollinate.
