Red Delicious Apple


Out of stock


Fruity aroma, sweet, reliable; a classic heirloom apple from Iowa in 1892.  Not impressive from the grocery store, and not as popular as it used to be, but when homegrown and tree-ripened it is actually quite crisp, juicy and tasty.  Makes excellent apple butter, but not a pie apple.  We include it for two reasons: we have seen it produce exceptionally large, delicious and good quality fruits even on neglected trees here in Central KY, attesting to it’s resilience and disease-resistance, and, people still want it and ask for it.  A solid home-orchard and commercial choice and time-tested variety.  Don’t knock it till you’ve homegrown it.
