The true Jonagold apple is large and yellow with great smudges of ripe redness on its cheeks. Its flesh is creamy white, very juicy with a crisp crunch to the bite and the flavour is honeyed and sweet
Jonagold is a happy union of Golden Delicious and Jonathan, a well-respected American apple, a union made in the 1940s and introduced to the market in the 1968. The RHS recognised it with an AGM in 1968 and since then it has been grown commercially all over the world, from USA to Japan.
