The name says it all! The Red Delicious apple is one of the most popular apples in America, and its signature tartness is characteristic of apples from New York State.

Taste: Bitter and tart, with a crispy skin

Use: Sauces, soups, salads

Nutritional value: offer a small amount of vitamins A and C, higher in antioxidants than many other apple varieties

Fun fact: This apple breaks down easily when slow-cooked and puréed, so it’s perfect for sauces and soups. It’s also long-lasting, so be sure to use it for your holiday centerpieces and gift baskets

Availability: October through September
