Goldrush Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree
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.
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.
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
