You're invited: Fruit & Nut pre-order pick up weekend will be April 27 & 28, 2024 (from 10 - 2 pm)!
One of the most luscious apples we’ve ever tasted and certainly our favorite winter apple bursting with deep, nuanced sweetness and such a satisfying crunch! The final apple we harvest in late November, Goldrush gets sweeter as they blush in the cold, undaunted all the way down to 22 F, -6 C. Lasting through May in the cellar, Goldrush is prime December through April.Cold hardy to zone 4, Goldrush is highly resistant to Apple Scab & Powdery Mildew with moderate resistance to Fire blight. All apples thrive with thoughtful thinning though Goldrush are particularly prolific, requiring thinning each season to harvest the large fruit we all dream of.
A cross of Golden Delicious x Co-op 17, we are grateful for PRI (a collaborative breeding program between Purdue, Rutgers, University of Illinois) for sharing this extraordinary variety in 1994. Undoubtedly, Goldrush is one of the best flavored storage apples of all time and certainly one of the most delectably disease resistant apples to come out of PRI.
Our Organic GoldRush Semi-Dwarf Apple Trees are bareroot nursery stock, and are graded to a minimum of 36” tall when Fall-dug from the nursery. All of our Organic Semi-Dwarf Apple varieties are grafted onto semi-dwarf Geneva apple rootstocks, making them easier to pick, prune and maintain than standard sized trees. Proven to be cold hardy, as well as resistant to Fireblight, Phytophthora and replant disease, Geneva semi-dwarf rootstocks induce fruit bearing in just a few years. Keeping most Apple varieties to between 10 and 12 feet tall at maturity, our semi-dwarf Apple trees will usually require support from staking or trellising throughout their lifespan. The reduced tree size allows trees to be spaced 8 to 15 feet apart if planted in a row.
And Friends, several Fruition tree varieties & rootstocks are patented, including the rootstock this variety is grafted onto — to learn more hop in here.
GoldRush needs another Apple variety nearby for Pollination! All of the Apples we offer are compatible pollination partners.

Fruition’s current online tree growing resources are focused on Apple Trees (and it is also true that Pears, Plums, Peaches, Apricots and Cherries require much the same site choice, planting, and basic care considerations)! On that note, we hope you'll enjoy Fruition's free full library of Growing Trees Resources. Also recommended are all books by the late Michael Phillips and the online resources at the New England Tree Fruit Management Guide. In the meantime, enjoy more Fruition tree growing resources:
