Well-loved for its maroon coloring and mild flavor, Red Delicious are extra sweet with creamy yellowish flesh. They are one of the best apples for munching out of hand or slicing into salads. This low acid, tender apple is great chopped in chunks with fresh walnuts and mixed with goat cheese. Spread the paste in endive spears or celery stalks. Always enjoy Red Delicious raw as it is not appropriate for cooking.
