This is one of our favorite apples to grown in our own orchard! The Dorsett Golden apple is an outstanding choice as pollinator to Anna. It is also a low chill variety, needing only 100 chill hours. Dorsett Golden apples look similar to Granny Smith, and they thrive in hot weather. Apples are crisp, sweet, and tart! Ripens in mid-summer. 100 chill hours; USDA Zones 6-9. Mainly self-pollinating, but has increased yields with Anna, Fuji, Gala, Ein Shemer, Southern crabapple. Dorsett Golden is one of our customers’ favorite apples for warmer climates.
