Greening

Rhode Island Greening is well-known American heirloom apple variety, dating back to the 17th century.  That makes it a very old apple, indeed there are not many European apples that can be traced back as far as Rhode Island Greening.  Perhaps surprisingly Rhode Island Greening is not a rare antique variety grown by enthusiasts as a historical curiosity, as its vintage might suggest.  Quite the opposite - it appears to have been a commercial variety from the outset and even today is still grown commercially.

 

Golden Delicious

A light colored apple with a mild, sweet flavor and crisp light yellow flesh.  A sweet treat for eating! The sweet flavor allows for less sugar when cooking and baking with these delicious apples.  Excellent for salads, sauces, pies, baking and freezing.

 

Honey Crisp

A relatively new variety of apple that was first introduced in the early 1990's but continues to gain popularity. Very juicy with a super crispy yellow flesh with a taste of honey allowing for both a very sweet yet tart taste. Excellent for eating, sauces and baking.

Red Delicious

Red Delicious is one of the most famous American apples, and one of the most widely grown apple varieties. Although the names are similar, Red Delicious and Golden Delicious are entirely different varieties. There are a lot of other similarities though: both varieties were discovered in the USA at the end of the 19th century, both need warm climates, both have interesting histories, and both are basically sweet apples.Red Delicious is "sport" of the original, the bright red colour making it more commercially successful, and it has become a very important commercial apple variety especially in North America.

Red Delicious is a medium-sized apple, with a tall conical shape. The dark and intense crimson colour makes it the quintessential red apple, and it is has strong shelf appeal.  A number of improved "sports" have been developed, of which the most well-known is probably Starking.

 

Russets

The term "Russet Apples" is used to describe apples that have "russeting" on them. Russeting is a patch of the apple's skin that is a different colour from the rest of the apple.  The color can be golden brown, burnt umber, silvery or grey. Some russeting will be a small area at the top or the bottom of the apple, or just a patch or two elsewhere on the apple. It may even cover almost all the entire apple. Apple enthusiasts feel that Russets are the best tasting apples, witha delicious combination of sweet and tart. Excellent for cooking.
