Have any of you picked an apple from your goldrush tree? I ate a green one a couple weeks ago and it tasted like a mild Granny Smith. Today I tasted a fresh picked apple and it was nothing like the the one before. It was very sweet with a little acid taste. This is the first year it made apples, and was hand pollinated. I am very satisfied with the results. I never thought I could grow a great tasting apple with grocery store size. The only problem I have is the rusty brown discoloration on the skin. But, a little soap and water and some scrubbing brought out it's beauty. I look forward to tasting my younger trees apples, Jonafree, Braeburn, Granny Smith, and Fuji.
I hope you all had fun and were rewarded well from your labor. Looking forward to next spring.
