Virginia's own apple
If the name Ginger Gold is unfamiliar, that's because it is a recentaddition to the list of apple varieties. It was discovered growing among the twisted uprooted trees in a Virginia orchard in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its ancestors are the Golden Delicious and Albermarle Pippin apples.
