Our client brought in some apples from his tree and he is wondering if you can identify the type? It has the taste and texture that is similar to a red delicious. Thanks for your help!

Greetings,

These apples could well be Red Delicious. The coloring and shape are consistent with that variety (i.e. Redchief). If the plants were purchased from a reputable nursery and he likens them to a red delicious, that is probably what they are. If the plant grew there from a seed, perhaps one of the parents was a RD and the other a ??.
