This old variety was widely planted in the 1800’s but Golden Delicious, to which it is similar, has replaced it in the fruit industry. However, in the opinions of many, Grimes Golden has better flavour. The story goes that it grew from a seed planted by Johnny Appleseed. Moderately resistant to fire blight and cedar-apple rust.
