MALUS domestica 'Golden Supreme'
Plant Common Name
Apple, Eating Apple, Golden Supreme Apple
This relatively new apple has earned attention for its flavor, sweetness and longevity in storage. The fruits are medium-sized and yellow, with a pink blush where sun reaches the skin. The flesh is firm, cream-colored, moderately crisp, juicy to very juicy, and browns slowly when exposed to air. The flavor is sweet to mildly sweet and pleasant with little or no detectable acid (unlike its parent, ‘Golden Delicious’). Harvest comes in early autumn. This apple can be kept for months in refrigerated storage.
Like most domestic apples, ‘Golden Supreme’ grows and fruits best in full sun in average, well-drained soil. It is a vigorous, upright tree, suitable as an ornamental for its bloom in a large yard. For a small yard, it should be grafted to a rootstock that controls its size. If allowed to bear a heavy crop, it will have a lighter crop the following year. Remove about one-third of the young fruits while they are still the size of marbles. This allows the tree to bear well year after year.
