Behold this large apple, shapely and tapered (if a little lopsided), a cheerful yellow with patches of orange-pink blush.
Russetted lenticels stand out against the light background, and there is a very small amount of ribbing.
A second version is smaller with a blush that is more like a dull peach color, tentative and petite.
Inside storySungold makes a pretty picture! Inside, crisp light yellow flesh is fine-grained and on the dense side. It is nonetheless juicy, surprisingly tart and sharp.
The dominant flavors are lemon and a little chamomile, with a background of table grapes and a dab of honey. Bracing but nice!
Suncrisp is pleasant, and I wonder how it would hold together for cooking.
There is not a lot of information about this apple online. The National Fruit Collection says this is a Golden Delicious x Red Delicious cross.
That's credible, although apparently at best an educated guess about this chance seedling from New Jersey.
