Goldrush Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree

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

*Bare-root apple trees will begin shipping mid-April 2022*

The most luscious winter apple we’ve ever tasted, 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 age.

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.

Tree shipping is limited to the following states: CT, DE, IA, IL, IN, MD, ME, MI, MN, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, VT, WI, WV

Note: Trees must be purchased separately from all other items like seeds and tools. Thank you!

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.
