About the Red Delicious :

The Red Delicious apple is America’s favorite snacking apple.The Red Delicious is the most widely grown variety of apple in the world. Red Delicious apples have firm, white or cream white flesh that is juicy, aromatic, sweet tasting. They are best eaten raw because of their thick skin. The heart shaped fruit is bright red and sometimes exhibits some red striping. It is crunchy with a mildly sweet flavor.

The Red Delicious is widely used in salads. Red Delicious apples look great for a long time so they are the favored choice for holiday centerpieces and wreaths. The fruit keeps fresh very well and can be found year around in stores.


A good Pollinator for the Red Delicious is the Granny Smith.
