Red Delicious: “The Handsome Apple”
Red Delicious with their unmatched shape and beauty have become the North American symbol of the apple. The commercial apple industry has heavily marketed this variety due to its look and shape. The thick skinned fruit has a yellow flesh that is sweet in flavor. Although many find Red Delicious to be long on looks and short on flavor, at Tuttles we try to grow strains of Red Delicious that do have an improved flavor. In short, not the same as your grocery store Red Delicious apple. Discovered as a chance seedling in 1870 by Jesse Hiatt, the Red Delicious apple has been widely produced since then.
