mature height 10-12ft requires staking late-season fresh eating & storage hardy to zone 4

Online apple tree sales are now closed for the season but join us on the farm at Frution's Garden Store May 7th & 8th for a selection of trees (and a Tree planting workshop!) offered then! ~

Apple tree orders will ship April 12th to 15th!

Organic Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree. 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.

We are sharing Goldrush on Geneva 202 dwarfing rootstock, making it easier to pick, prune, and maintain than standard sized trees. Dwarfing trees are more precocious than standards, bearing fruit earlier in just a few seasons! Requiring the support of a stake or trellis, this vigorous rootstock holds up against weed competition better than other dwarfing rootstocks and doesn’t sucker, as well.

Exceptional in flavor and storage, Goldrush is also highly resistant to scab and powdery mildew with moderate resistance to fire blight. Hardy to zone 4.

Note: Please purchase trees separately from other items (however the Apple Abundance kit plus apple trees in an order is grand!)

Dwarfing trees are more precocious than standards, bearing fruit earlier in age! Requiring the support of a stake or trellis, this vigorous rootstock holds up against weed competition better than other dwarfing rootstocks and doesn’t sucker, as well.

All apples thrive with thoughtful thinning though Goldrush (Liberty and Pristine, too!) are particularly prolific, requiring thinning each season to harvest the 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.
