Detroit Red Apple
Malus domestica 'Detroit Red'
- Hardiness Zone & More
The Detroit Red, not to be confused with the "Red Detroit" southern variety, is a classic deep red apple with thick skin that becomes a dark black-purple at maturity. Its soft, snow white flesh is a North Georgia favorite for sauces.
Introduced into the Detroit, Michigan area by early French Homesteaders. Well-groomed Detroit Red trees can be found growing today at Monticello, which Thomas Jefferson planted in 1805.
