From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (edited):
The Golden Delicious is a large, yellow skinned cultivar of apple with a very sweet taste. It is not closely related to the Red Delicious apple. It is prone to bruising and shriveling, so it needs careful handling and storage. It is a favorite for salads, apple sauce, and apple butter.
