The Instacart guide to red delicious apples
About red delicious apples
A red delicious apple, which is classified as Malus Domestica, is one of the most popular commercially grown apples in the United States. It is medium-sized and has a conical shape. Before the fruit is fully ripe, its thick skin turns bright red, which can lead to early harvests. The apple's skin turns into dark red with white lenticels that visibly dot the surface as it matures. The fruit's fine-grained flesh is creamy white, juicy, and crisp, and has a sweet taste with flavors of melon.
This apple variety looks a lot different today than when it was first discovered. Over a period of almost 100 years, improvements were made, modifying the fruit's juiciness, firmness, color, and shape. Red delicious is the parent apple of many popular varieties such as the Fuji, Empire, and Starkrimson apples.
Red delicious apples contain a high level of vitamin C and dietary fiber. They provide a small amount of sodium and vitamin A and traces of iron and calcium. They have higher antioxidants compared to other apple varieties, most of which are contained in the skin.
