Red Delicious Apple Tree


Red Delicious apple trees are a popular variety of apple tree that are known for their bright red color, sweet flavor, and crisp texture. At maturity, a Red Delicious apple tree typically grows to a height of 20 to 25 feet (6 to 7.5 meters) and a width of 15 to 20 feet (4.5 to 6 meters). The tree has a symmetrical, upright growth habit and a dense canopy of oval-shaped leaves that turn yellow in the fall.

In the spring, the Red Delicious apple tree produces clusters of pink-tinged white flowers that are attractive to bees and other pollinators. The tree is self-fertile but produces better yields when cross-pollinated with another apple tree of a different variety.

The Red Delicious apple is a large, deep red apple with a sweet, slightly tart flavor and a firm, juicy texture. The skin is thick and tough, making it a good apple for storing over the winter. The flesh is creamy white and has a mild, sweet flavor that is excellent for eating fresh, cooking, or baking.

Overall, the Red Delicious apple tree is a popular choice for home orchards and commercial growers alike due to its attractive appearance, reliable yields, and delicious fruit.
