The Autumn Delight is a fantastic cold hardy apple, that grows well in colder regions of Canada.
The apples, averaging around 6 to 7 cm (2.5") in diameter, are refreshingly juicy yet crisp and excellent for fresh eating. The flavour is subtly sweet, no tartness. The skin is a pink over light green with a fresh tasting white flesh.
Harvested from the middle to late September, Autumn Delight keeps in cold storage for up to three months.
Released by the University of Saskatchewan. Grows naturally semi-dwarf in size.
