Jonagold

Sweet, with a tang! Jonagold embodies the sweetness of its parent Golden Delicious, and the tart zip of its other parent, Jonathan. Picked properly, its hard to beat a Jonagold for all around flavor. A favorite at our markets where couples that like both sweet and tart find a place to agree. Like Jonathan, it is does not keep well and is at its peak in September and early October.  Jonagold makes an excellent apple sauce that is sweet with a bit of tart.  Look for Jonagold starting in the middle of September.
