The History:

First developed at the University of Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station in 1942 it is a cross between two apple varieties (Jonathan and Wagener). Its main feature is its remarkably long storage potential – even in a domestic fridge it will readily keep for 6 months. As a result it has become quite popular, both in North America and Europe. The Ida Red is an attractive apple with a mild apple flavor.
