Description

Red Delicious is a medium-sized apple, with a tall conical shape. The dark and intense crimson colour makes it the quintessential red apple, and it is has strong shelf appeal. Unfortunately, the visual appeal is not matched by the flavor. Red Delicious has a sweet but very mild flavor, somewhat reminscent of slightly over-ripe melon. The flesh is juicy and has a light crispness. The skin can be quite tough. Overall Red Delicious can be quite a refreshing apple to eat, but its chief characteristic is that it has almost no flavor at all.

Description

Despite its resemblance to the Red Delicious apple in shape and name, the Golden Delicious is an entirely separate variety. It is an all-purpose apple, suitable for baking, eating raw, using in pies, and making applesauce. Its freckled, golden-yellow skin makes it distinctive, as does the fact that its flesh, when sliced, doesn’t darken as readily as that of other apples

Description

Granny Smith apples have a bright green skin that is often speckled with faint white spots. Medium to large in size and round in shape, they are a firm and juicy apple with thick skin. Their flesh is bright white and crisp in texture with a tart, acidic, yet subtly sweet flavor. Granny Smith apples grown in colder climates will often take on a yellow to pink blush. Granny Smith apples are available year-round.
