Red Delicious

Possibly the most widely recognized of all U.S. apple varieties, the Red Delicious apple is mildly sweet and juicy with a crisp yellow flesh.

While they are grown across the country, only our Red Delicious have the slight tartness so characteristic of apples from New York.

This apple is best eaten fresh or in salads.They also look great for a long time, making them an ideal choice for holiday centerpieces and wreaths.
