Grandpa's Early Golden Delicious is a strain of regular Golden Delicious that ripens a couple weeks ahead of normal.   Grandpa's strain is more russet resistant than the original Golden Delicious, but has all the same qualities--- large, sweet, juicy golden yellow fruit.  It is a favorite for pies, sauce, cooking, juice and all purposes.   Stores well.  Harvests early in September.

Golden Delicious is sometimes known as Yellow Delicious.  It has been a profitable apple for years for commercial growers and maybe that is why it is know known as golden.  It was one of Grandpa's and Grandma's favorites for different reasons.  Grandpa loved it defines grower friendly and Grandma loved it because it could be used in the kitchen for almost every purpose.  It started as a chance seedling of old-time Grimes Golden from West Virginia around 1900.
