Golden Delicious apples may not be exactly golden in colour, but they are certainly delicious! They are mild, sweet and perfect for a mid-afternoon pick me up. Developed in West Virginia, USA in the 1800s, these apples genes are now present in many new apple varieties the world over.
ORIGIN: Our Golden Delicious all come from an apple grower extraordinaire in France. His location in France ensures that our apples are not too mild or too sweet. He makes sure they are just the right shade of yellow-green-golden before picking them, and packs them quickly so they can reach us with just the right amount of sweetness, crispness in their skins.
NUTRITION: Apple are loaded with fiber, which can help lower cholesterol, control weight and regulate blood sugar. They also contain vitamins A and C, and their skin contains potassium, which is a brilliant regulator of fluids in your body.
TIP: The thinner skin of the Golden Delicious apple means that you should handle it just a bit more gently than your other apples, and definitely keep it in the refrigerator to get the most out of your shelf life.
