It tastes like a pear in my SW Iowa zone 5 area. Doesn't seem to keep very
well. Fun to eat. Judson L. Frisk

Subject: [NAFEX] Hudson's Golden Gem apple
For the last couple seasons I've been very impressed with the quality of
Hudson's Golden Gem. It is very rich, quite sweet with an unusual crunchy
texture. This deeply russeted apple is pear-like but distinctly apple never
the less. It's a little like Golden Russett and looks like a more conical
version of that apple but seems easier to grow- I think it would be equal to
G R in creating a distinctly rich apple cider once you had more than you
could use for fresh eating. It's probably the most unusual apple I grow.
I am describing it as grown in Zone 6 and imagine it might be excessively
sweet in more southern climes. I'm interested in other members experience
with this apple.
