Huge, crunchy, and fun, this Northern Spy x Golden Delicious cross is famous as a pie apple. At this size, according to the woman who grew this one, "You only need 3 for a pie." A big pie.
It also eats nice and friendly, with a great texture and clean, accessible flavors.
Here's a link to my full Spigold review from 2010. Ijust wanted to share my photo of this extra-pretty sample from 2014.
