Crimson Delight Wikipedia
Crimson Delight is an apple cultivar and is a cross of a Splendour with a Gala. Apple King LLC of Yakima, Washington is the registered trademark holder of the name Crimson Delight. The apple is also known as the WA 2.
The Crimson Delight tree has a compact growth habit and is highly productive. The fruit is not prone to sunburn or bitter pit and is harvested in the fall around late September to October. Post-harvest the fruit is not sensitive to bruising and is easy to handle on packing lines. The apple stores exceptionally well and can last 6 months in refrigerated storage and 12 months in controlled atmosphere storage. Flavor peaks as it is stored and ripens further if set out on a counter for a few days to a week.
Crimson Delight is a multi-purpose apple intended for snacking, baking and fresh recipes. The fruit size is medium to large with a firm texture and is crisp and juicy. The skin is an orange red to pinkish blush over a limited yellow background.
