Idared
Idared Apple

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 Wagener, 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 make a beautiful pink applesauce. Cook the apples with the skins on and strain the sauce to get the best pink color.

Availability

  • October through August
