Ida Red: “The Jumbo Tart”
Ida Red is Jonathan cross developed by the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station, Ida Red apples are sweetly tart, juicy, and have a firm pale yellow-green flesh, sometimes tinted rosy pink. They are excellent for sauce, cooking, baking, pies, and good for eating, salads and freezing. Ida Reds make a beautiful pink applesauce. Cook the apples with the skins on and strain the sauce to get the best pink color. Very similar to a Jonathan…but we think better. One of the best pie apples there is.
