Red Delicious Apples - 10lb Box

Red Delicious Apples - 10lb Box

Availability: In stock

$28.00

Flavor, Texture, Usage
This is the ultimate in a fresh eating apple. Its beautiful red color contributes to its popularity. Our apples are carefully grown for taste rather than for looks. We allow our apples to ripen naturally on the tree and pick them while firm and bursting with flavor.

Availability
This apple should be available for sale towards the end of September. It is our "February Apple of the Month" and is available to pre-order under the “Monthly Apples” menu.


History
Red Delicious, the largest selling apple in the world, was found on the farm of Jesse Hiatt in Peru, Iowa, in the 1870's. The Stark Brothers tree nursery in Missouri first named it "Hawkeye"; However, the story behind its name today is rather interesting. When C.M. Stark bit into a prize-winning apple at the Stark Brothers apple show, he is said to exclaim, "My that's delicious . . . and that's the name for it". Turkey Knob Red Delicious apples certainly live up to their name.

A Word from Mother Nature on Shipping
Please note, that because we are dealing with a product of nature, we reserve the right to allow up to 2 weeks, to process an order. If your order needs to be delayed for any reason, we will notify you. We typically ship apples on Mondays and Tuesdays to avoid the shipment being held at a depot over the weekend. On some occasions, if we know that FedEx can deliver in less than 3 days, we may ship your order on Wednesdays.
