Harvesting Red Delicious
Help! While I am an old time gardener, I planted my first few fruit trees a few years ago and now I have my first apples on a Red Delicious dwarf tree. I have about 15 beautiful apples on this little tree. (My Red Rome beauties are in the same condx.) They look ready to pick but all the literature says thit is too early to harvest Red Delicious. How does one know when they are ready to pick?
