Jonagold is an excellent dessert variety that is much more popular in Europe than America. It is a cross between Jonathon and Golden Delicious and retains some of the best features of both. It has a sprightly, juicy flavor like Jonathon and a sweetness and aroma similar to that of Golden Delicious. Jonagold consistently places high in taste tests in Europe. The subtle and complex taste seems to be at its best for a couple of weeks after picking, when it can be a real treat. This is another variety that proves the value of buying locally and in season.
