14 apples were picked
The Golden Delicious apple, named for its yellow-gold skin and sweet flavor, was declared the official state fruit of West Virginia in 1995. This tasty variety was first found 90 years earlier on the Mullins family farm in that state’s Clay County. Unsurprisingly, news of the Mullins family’s wonderful apple caused a “gold” rush. It quickly became a popular variety both in America and abroad, and is now planted wherever apples are grown around the world. A yearly Golden Delicious Festival has been held in Clay County since 1972.
'Golden Delicious' was one of four apples honored by the United States Postal Service in a 2013 set of four 33¢ stamps commemorating historic strains, joined by 'Northern Spy', 'Baldwin', and 'Granny Smith': https://about.usps.com/news/national-releases/2013/images/pr13_004-2.png
Sweet and fragrant, the lightly textured green/gold skin of the Goldens protects a crisp interior and helps the apple retain its extra juiciness. The appealingly uniform shape and the wide variety of uses have helped propel Golden Delicious into the second most popular apple in the United States. Great for both fresh-eating and in salads (because the flesh stays white longer), Golden Delicious maintains a rich taste when baked or cooked in such products as apple sauces, apple butter, apple pies. They are also considered the best choice for apple cider.
