Red Delicious Apple

Red Delicious Apple

Red Delicious is the most popular apple planted in the U.S. This apple tree produces a medium to large, deep red apple which exhibits juicy white flesh. This apple is used for eating fresh off the tree and commonly used in desserts. The taste is mild and sweet with very little notes of acidity and the texture is very firm and crisp. The Red Delicious needs another pollinator of a different variety planted within 50' of it in order to ensure proper pollination
