Apple review- Red Delicious

The Red Delicious apple, when taken at the peak of ripeness tastes like candy, especially when coated in lemon juice to keep it from turning brown.  It has been my favorite apple since childhood (back in the days when I used to refuse to eat apples because they had that icky skin stuff on them.)

The Red Delicious has firm, crisp flesh and a minimum of tartness.  They are very sweet, but can have an unpleasant after flavor if not ripe enough.  The skin is somewhat thick, but is well attached to the flesh so it can be easily bitten.  I would give it a graininess rating of about 1 out of 5 (almost no graininess unless it's overripe).
I would definitely eat this apple variety again.

(And again, and again),
