Description

Malus domestica

No wonder this is America's favorite apple! It is delicious, and a beautiful deep red. It's crisp and juicy and best enjoyed right off the tree. Crisp, juicy white flesh is great for eating fresh or cooking. The Red Delicious is a clone of apple cultigen, now comprising more than 50 cultivars, recognized in Madison County, Iowa, in 1880. According to the US Apple Association website it is one of the fifteen most popular apple cultivars in the United States.

Planting & Care

Apples tolerate many soil types, but grow best in well-drained, loamy soil. Apples grow best in full sun where there is cold in winter, moderate summer temperatures, and medium to high humidity. Water regularly, at least weekly. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Apples benefit from pruning, which is normally carried out while the trees are still dormant in late Winter. Apple trees can live for 100 years or more.
