Say hello to every gardener's dream apple tree!
Legend states that the Red Delicious apple was named when its discoverer in Iowa sent samples to a commercial nursery in 1892. The nursery owner tasted one of the apples and exclaimed, "Delicious!"
The Red Delicious Apple tree is one of the world's most commonly planted apple trees and is among the easiest and most dependable apple trees to grow. Beautiful clusters of pink buds open to reveal creamy white blooms. From September to October the fruit will turn from a pale green to their familiar bright red color, signaling that they are ripe and ready to be picked.
The fruit's thin skin and delicious crispness make the Red Delicious ideal for eating fresh off the tree and for baking. Around 700 chill hours will be needed for this tree.
