Ida Red


Savor the old fashioned goodness of baked apples, especially Idareds, which hold their shape perfectly and look beautiful on the table.

Developed in Idaho, it's a cross between two old time NY apples, Jonathan and Wagner, first raised in Penn Yan in 1791.

What’s it like?

• Sweetly tart

• Juicy

• Firm pale yellow-green flesh, sometimes tinted rosy pink

Best uses:

• Excellent for sauce, cooking, baking and pies

• Good for eating, salads and freezing

Special Hint:

• Idareds makes a beautiful pink applesauce. Cook the apples with the skins on and strain the sauce to get the best pink color.


• October through August
