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
• Firm pale yellow-green flesh, sometimes tinted rosy pink
• Excellent for sauce, cooking, baking and pies
• Good for eating, salads and freezing
• 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
