Rider and Sons in Watsonville, California selectively pick their Jonagolds riper than most areas could. The fruit ripens slower in the cooler climate and develops the complex flavor components that can be lost with higher temperatures. Jonagolds require special care and attention. Rider’s philosophy is to get them off the tree, picked and packed within a day or two and shipped immediately to be sold quickly at optimum maturity. Jonagolds parents are the Golden Delicious and Jonathan apple. They are delicious for juicing!
