Red Delicious

How well do you know the Red Delicious?

Its characteristics

The name says it all, it’s an absolute delight to bite into one of these slender apples with its bright colour, crunchy texture and very sweet taste. The Red Delicious is a wonderful addition to your fruit salads and other tasty recipes. This versatile apple was quite popular until 1980, and then fell out of favour with customers who were more interested in expanding their horizons by trying out the latest trendy apples.

Small apple, big story

The story of the Red Delicious began in 1872 in Iowa, where a man named Jesse Hiatt discovered it by chance on his land. This succulent fruit has been given many names over the years: Hawkeye, then Delicious, and finally Red Delicious, to distinguish it from the Golden Delicious.
