Positive Farmerdill On Dec 16, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

These are relatively rare, I had one at my backdoor in Radford for 2 8 years. It is a relative small yellow apple with a delicate flavor. The skin is tougher than the Golden delicious and tend to keep better under natural conditions. It also tend to hold together in cooked dishes. It is more susceptible to disease than the Golden Delicious. I could not get edible fruit with out a well timed spray program.

Also known as: Grimes Golden Pippin, Bellflower.

Considered one of the finest American apples ever, Grimes Golden originated in 1790 in Brooke County, West Virginia where today a granite monument still stands in recognition of this outstanding apple. Grimes Golden is one of the parents of the widely popular Golden Delicious. Fruit is medium to large, roundish to slightly oblong with tough yellow skin with occasional patches of russet. This aromatic apple is highly flavored with tender, crisp, juicy yellowish-orange flesh. Ripens September to October and is a good keeper.
