Jonagold apples have an under blush which varies in colour from greenish yellow to rosy orange depending on the strain and the temperature the apples are grown in. The skin is also covered with red spotting and vertical striping. Large in size its flesh is crisp, juicy and creamy yellow in colour. The Jonagold apple has a balanced blend of both its parents' flavours offering the sweet-tart taste found in the Jonathan and the aromatic honey like scent of the Golden Delicious. It's pollen is sterile and needs two pollinating partners nearby which must both be of different varieties and able to cross-pollinate each other as well as the Jonagold. (Most white-blossom crab-apples will also be good pollinators for this variety). Great disease resistance and very prolific.
