Hoople's Antique Gold was lost for several years in our nursery. We're thrilled to have it back in our orchard. The antique in this case refers to the gold coloration with russeting, not the age of the variety. Orginally discovered on a limb of a Golden Delcious on the Hoople's Fruit Farm in Ohio. Some stripes against a yellow background., sometimes russeted. Medium to large fruit. Rich, lightly aromatic flavor, juicy sweet and resistant to fireblight. Often one of the top rated apples at many apple tastings in California.

Shipping Note:  Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
