Our orchard has a variety of trees including Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Rome Beauties. The Golden Delicious have a very good flavor and make a great applesauce and dried apples. Red Delicious is one of the most famous American varieties are wonderful in Waldorf Salad. The Rome apples are a firm, slightly tart apple that are great for applesauce, caramel apples, pies, apple dumplings, baked apples, and crisps. All three are a good eating apple depending on your preference.
