Spigold Apple

Malus domestica 'Spigold'

Farmers who grew Spigold loved the apple, but it never made it commercially.  Spigold is an exceptionally high quality with firm, fine grained, crisp yellow flesh.  It stores very well.  It has a flavor that combines Northern Spy and Golden Delicious into a superior blend.  It is good for fresh eating, cooking and baking.  The tree is a strong, hardy grower.  It blooms late and requires a pollinizer as it is a triploid.  Ripens in October  about a week before Northern Spy.

Malus domestica 'Spigold'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Spigold is a triploid variety and has sterile pollen.  It needs another late blooming pollinator, and cannot be used to pollinate any other apples.  Do not use another triploid since all triploid apples have sterile pollen.  Spigold is resported to have some fire blight resistance.
