Red Delicious

Red Delicious

Mild, sweet and refreshing.

Tasting Notes

Since its development in the 1880’s, the iconic Red Delicious became one of the most widely grown varieties in North America. With its deep red colouring and characteristic long, tapered shape, the Red Delicious is a stunning beauty and the darling of the fruit bowl. A medium to larger sized apple, it can be described as refreshing, firm and sweet with a mild flavour. Although beautiful in salads, it is not recommended for cooking because it takes a long time to soften.
