IDARED

The fruit is of medium size, ca. 140 g weight, spherical in shape, slightly flattened at stalk and chalice. Its skin is hard, thick and shiny, light yellow with greenish shade. The flush colour starts from light red to reach carmine, diffused, with few bands and smudges. The flesh is white, with creamy shade, fine-grained, juicy, firm with mildly sour taste, delicious if the fruit is collected in proper time and stored accurately. The Idared apples collected in the middle of October get ready for consumption in January and can be stored well until spring. Refrigerated in controlled atmosphere, they keep good quality even for a year.
