Red Delicious

The Red Delicious is the most widely grown apple in the world, red with darker red streaks, and five "points" on the bottom. Like many other cultivars, it was a chance seedling. The legend is that a hardy seedling was found in 1868 by one Jesse Hiatt, an apple grower outside East Peru, Iowa, USA. Hiatt tried to kill it, but it kept coming back, and finally Hiatt let it grow, eventually bringing its fruit to a fruit show in Louisiana, Missouri. It won first prize. The Red Delicious was originally called "Hawkeye" by Hiatt, but after taking it to the fruit show in Lousiana it was called simply "Delicious". When the Golden Delicious was discovered in 1914, the name changed again to "Red Delicious."

Red Delicious apples have more antioxidant activity than others, according to a Canadian study that appeared in the June 29, 2005, issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Antioxidants are believed to be able to neutralize the unstable compounds called free radicals, which can damage the cells and tissues leading ultimately to heart disease, prostate, colon, and other cancers.
