Grandpa's Double Red-Idared
Malus domestica 'Idared-Improved Red'
- Hardiness Zone & More
Grandpa's Double Red Idared is a selected strain of regular Idared that shows improved red color all around. Similar in all other respects.
Grandpa used to say that Idared was one of the few apples that was related to the potato, because it was bred and introduced by the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station in 1942. It is a Jonathan X Wagener cross. Guess Grandpa was wrong--- no Burbank potato blood at all!
