Golden Goodness with a hint of blush
If you enjoy the sweet, crisp taste of Golden Delicious apples then you’ll love the Dorsett Apple. This incredible tree with the southern flair is hardy enough to grow anywhere from zones 5-9.
The Dorsett’s skin is splashed with an orange-red blush hue, giving your yard a picturesque look as the apples emerge from your tree.
Of all the apple varieties, the Dorsett is the first to bloom as early as mid-January in areas with milder winter climates. That means you can expect an abundance of enormous apples as early as late June. And the Dorsett is easy to care for. Just give it plenty of sun and watch it thrive.
How does the Dorsett taste? One word says it all: Delicious
Take a Golden Delicious apple, add a hint of vanilla and just the right touch of sweetness and you have a Dorsett Apple. Although it ripens in early summer, the Dorsett doesn’t have the sharp berry flavors typical of most summer varieties, so it has the taste and firmness of a Fall apple.
With a crunchy bite and distinctive, aromatic flavor, the Dorsett is wonderful right off the tree or prepared fresh in recipes like the Dorsett Apple cake. Add your favorite glaze to finish off a treat your family will look forward to each season.
