Why Ida Red Apples?:
The Idared has a white flesh with a firm body, and generally considered to be tart and juicy. For these reasons, it is very well suited for making apple sauces, pies, and cakes.
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.
