Red Delicious is known for the consistency of its texture, bright red color, and conical shape. It is a sweet apple, lightly aromatic with a firm, cream-colored flesh. Generally it is a little juicier and sweeter ripening under New England's long summer days and crisp fall nights. It is best eaten fresh, in salads, and in fruit compotes.
Red Delicious shipments are available October 1st through December 18th. Lyman Orchards reserves the right to substitute a similar or better apple. To ensure optimum quality, all perishable gifts are shipped from our orchards on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Please note that due to rules regulating fruit shipments we cannot ship apples to the following states: Arizona, California, New Mexico, Idaho, Utah, Washington, and Oregon. We are able to ship processed and non-perishable products, including pies, cheese and jams/preserves to these States.
We ship only the finest apples, picked in our orchards during the peak of the harvest season. Timing of harvest seasons vary due to unpredictable weather which may delay or hasten fruit ripening. Please note that the dates of apple variety availability listed on this site are approximate.
