Red Delicious Apples

The Red Delicious is one persistent apple. Hailing from Peru, Iowa, this apple was a chance seedling that wouldn’t stop growing, even after being chopped down by farmer Jesse Hiatt. Persistence paid off as today Red Delicious is one of the most recognizable apple varieties in the United States. Red Delicious are known for their classic coke-bottle shape, deep to bright red skin, and mildly sweet flavor and only a few notes of acidity.
