A blend of Jonathan and Golden Delicious apples, the New York native Jonagold apple offers a unique honey-tart flavor and crispy, juicy, nearly yellow flesh. It debuted in 1968, a product of the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. With a yellow-green base skin color and a red-orange blush, it is excellent both for eating fresh and for cooking. Jonagold is typically available October through July.

It is a firm apple with a crisp, unique, tangy-sweet flavor. The Jonagold is excellent for both eating fresh and for cooking.
