Anyone hear of Charlie's Gold apple?

I ordered scion from Masonville Orchard and he suggested I try Charlie's Gold. I ordered the scion but can't find any info on it.

I guess I posted too soon. It is named "Firm Gold", or "Firmgold".
A chance seedling found growing among some Starkspur Golden Delicious and Starkrimson Red Delicious trees, in Zillah, Washington, USA, by Z.B. Howell. Fruits have firm, crisp, juicy flesh with a sweet flavour.

Here is a link that might be useful: Firmgold
