We have several apple trees. We tried this variety of apple from an orchard just north of us and it was wonderful. I am very pleased to find it in your catalog to be able to order and add to our other trees.

Is this tree blithe resistant?
Carolyn H on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Carolyn, I purchased my Ginger Gold last fall and planted it according to instructions, but I don't know if it is 'blight' resistant or not. I have been unable to find any claim to that effect, so I would assume that they are not blight resistant.

Coming along well
I planted this just over a year ago. It has set well. I trained one long central branch and pulled the others lower so they did not compete. This year it has some good foliage but no flowers yet. I am very hopeful for a crop next year.

Good customer service
This bare root apple tree has proved to be hardy since it is one of the 2 fruit trees out of 7 that survived unusually poor winter conditions right after planting. The company replaced the 5 that didn't make it with no hassle. This tree is growing well now and I hope to see fruit on it in the next few years.

Hard to find in stores
We discovered Ginger Gold in a few grocery stores a couple of years ago, fell in love with them, only to have them disappear quickly. The next year, only a few stores, and this year we couldn't find any. Our solution - plant our own tree. Now we just have to be patient and search the grocery stores each year until ours is old enough to produce.
