Ginger Gold Apple
The Ginger Gold apple is is not only gold on the outside but gold on the inside (try it, especially as it ripens early in July and August). It also has an interesting story behind its deliciousness and resilience. When Hurricane Camille hit Virginia in 1969, this tree was one of the few that the orchard owners, Clyde and Frances, or "Ginger", found that had survived. After digging up some dirt on the tree, they found out that it was a descendent of Golden Delicious and Newtown Pippin. It was later named after Clyde's wife, Frances, or "Ginger", hence Ginger Gold.
