Quick Apple Contest (in Contests)

Quick contest to answer a question of mine. Our family just recieved a bag of Ginger Gold apples with our produce, and I was wondering (since I ate one and it was tasty but an odd texture) whether Ginger Golds are typically a cooking or an eating apple.

Simple, easy to google question that I'm too lazy to find out. If someone can get the answer for me in, oh, 10 mins (I'm posting this at 5:32) I'll pay 10k. :P

Primary use is eating out of hand.

Keep your money.

The Ginger Gold Apple was discovered in Ginger Harvey's orchard in Virginia, thus the name "Ginger Gold." This happens to be a chance seedling which is unique in that it was not developed in a research center where many new varieties are derived. The fruit is golden yellow, medium to large size, smooth and typey, sweet and only mildly tart. The flesh is white to creamy, with good storage life for an early season apple. Ginger Gold is being planted across the country in small acreage's, receiving great acceptance in the local marketplace. This is likely to be one of the first fresh eating apples of the year. Look for this variety to come in mid August, (shelf life-3 months in regular storage)

Ok thanks a lot people. Either I got a bad one, or it's just not a great eating apple...was pretty mealy. :| The texture was almost crumbly.

Sending money to SNK, as per request of Illuvatar :D
