    The U.S. Apple Association shares facts and recipe ideas for the Jonagold apple.

    Female Speaker: Are you at the top of your game, then your apple should be too? Meet the Jonagold apple red with yellow and orange blush. It's firm and sweet, plus it smells yummy. Perfect for cooking or eating fresh, it's available October through July.

    A true New York apple, it was created by the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in the 50s and introduced to the market in 1968. Like all apples the Jona contains nutrients that may improve memory and learning, plus high fiber that keeps you feeling fuller longer to maintain a healthy weight. And while this apple is delicious for pies, I love mixing it up with crushed California Walnuts and chocolate dip for a true all American experience. Grab a Jonagold off the shelf for cooking and snacking.
