Britegold is a Canadian selection introduced in 1980 as a hardy, scab-resistant substitute for Golden Delicious. An attractive, mid-sized, golden-yellow apple with a rosy blush on the sunny side, Britegold is very sweet with low acidity. While this is exactly what some folks prefer, others might consider it somewhat bland. Claude Jolicoeur, the master cider maker finds Britegold very useful to reduce the acidity in a blend, since so many cider varieties are very high acid types. The tree itself is vigorous, hardy, productive, and easy to grow.
