You're invited: Fruit & Nut pre-order pick up weekend will be April 27 & 28, 2024 (from 10 - 2 pm)!
A serendipitous chance seedling discovered in an Oregon fencerow, Hudson’s Golden Gem has been blowing people’s minds since 1931. The large and tapered-conical fruit with full yellow-brown russet skin reveals a crisp apple flavored and textured like Bosc pear. Confusion is the most common first-take: is this a pear, or an apple….or both??? These are questions that can only be answered by many more bites! Overall good resistance to Apple Scab, Mildew and Fireblight.
Our Hudson’s Golden Gem Heirloom Semi-Dwarf Apple Trees are 2-year old, non-organic, bare-root nursery stock.
Several Fruition tree varieties & rootstocks are patented, including the rootstock this variety is grafted onto — to learn more, hop in here.
And Friends! This variety needs another Apple variety nearby for pollination.
Please purchase trees & tree kits separately from non-tree items. Also on orders of 25+ trees, enjoy a 10% discount automatically applied to your cart!
