Jonagold was developed by Cornell University’s apple breeding program at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York circa 1953. This tasty cross has the tartness of a Jonathon and the sweet flavor of the Golden Delicious apple.
After blooming in the spring, follow lovely golden apples that blush. By mid-September, you’ll be treated with a nice crop of crisp, juicy Jonagold apples – sweet enough to be dessert by itself.
This particular apple tree thrives in colder climates. It benefits from a regular spray routine to keep pests and disease at bay.
Note: Jonagold is a Triploid apple tree and cannot pollinate other apple trees.
