Red Delicious Apple

Malus x domestica 'Red Delicious'

SKU
05896
This is America's favorite snacking Apple! Prepare yourself for an extra crunchy, mildly sweet, flavorful apple; home grown Red Delicious are much tastier than those you will find in the supermarket. Vigorous trees produce lots of juicy, sweet fruit that keeps well. Harvest in September and October. Recommended chilling: 900 hours. Deciduous.
