Red Delicious- Spur type

Malus domestica 'Red Delicious- Spur type'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

Granpa also offers Spur Red Delicious, which is a more compact strain of our regular Red Delicious. It is better for smaller spaces, being almost 2/3 the size of our non-spur strain. Blooms and harvests the same times. Flavor and quality is the same.

"Spur" strains of apples were developed for the commercial orchardist because they are more productive and take up less room in the orchard. Spur Red Delicious is probably the most compact and productive example of all the "spur" varieties of apple.
