The Red Delicious has a firm and juicy pulp that remains firm to the bite for a long time. Its taste is very sweet, with relatively little acidity.
Martin Schuster, apple grower from Vezzano/Vetzan, about the Red Delicious
The Red Delicious can probably be described as a "fashion apple" among all the varieties: both the shape and the very striking dark red colour make this apple, which has an ideal optical shape, a real eye-catcher. This variety feels particularly at home on the higher slopes and mountain sides with a cooler climate.
