Red Delicious is a medium-sized apple, with a tall conical shape. The dark and intense crimson color makes it the quintessential red apple, and it is has a strong shelf appeal. Red Delicious has a sweet but very mild flavor, somewhat reminiscent of slightly over-ripe melon. The flesh is juicy and has a light crispness. The skin can be quite tough. Red Delicious is one of the most famous American apples, and one of the most widely grown apple varieties.
Red Delicious apples are best used in fresh preparations, as their flesh does not hold up well when cooked. Add to green, fruit, and chopped salads. Use as an edible garnish on sandwiches, quesadillas, and burgers.
The optimum storage temperature for apples depends on the variety, but all are within the range from 30 to 40 F. Apples are moderately susceptible to freeze damage. Temperatures more than 1 or 2 degrees below freezing should be avoided.
