If you plant a red delicious apple seed you don't get a red delicious apple tree.  You probably get an apple that tastes like ass.

That is why apple trees of any variety are clones of one another, so you can expect to see more of this variety.

That is if this isn't fake, which I suspect it is.

A pied apple?  So, if you find enough of them you can make a pied apple pie?

I'll have mine with a slice of colby-jack.

yep - there's no way this is true.  I saw some pixels in that picture.

Much like that Star Trek episode referenced, it makes for a nice story, but it is pure BS.

Red Delicious apples do taste like ass. Worse than ass, even. At least ass has the decency not to insist it's delicious.

The other half is more likely Golden Delicious.  The photos are too small for me to find the same freckling that the Red side has.

I'd feed that apple to a lobster.

I don't believe there ever was a Granny Smith, but I know there was a Delicious Red...Gillian Anderson. Yowsa!

Apples only turn red when exposed to sunlight. I am guessing this is a hoax they made by covering up half the apple.

We had a tree in the back yard, an old wild apple tree. My dad and I grafted all sorts of type of apples on it, and just for fun, a couple of peach, pear, and cherry branches. After a few years, it was always fun to have people try to identify WTF was going on with it.

Yeah, we got peaches, pears, and apples from it.

This sounded intriguing so I googled... and found this:  http://www.ediblegeography.com/the-tree-with-the-apple-tattoo/  --- looks like this mystery is already known, and solved at least a year ago...

Hell, domesticated apples aren't even pure apple -- there's a fair amount of crabapple running in their genetics. Wild apples are more grapefruit-sized.

While I understand what you are saying, red delicious already taste like ass.

Many Tasmanians are born with two heads due to inbreeding, so it's not a a surprise that their fruit  has evolved to satisfy one head that likes it juicy and the other that prefers it crisp.

fark yes.

I had the biggest crush on her back in the day, in the first season of X-files.  Had her on my screensaver and everything.

Then I saw her on Letterman, and she spoke without the benefit of a script.  <insert sad tag>  Kinda ruined it for me.

/would still move heaven and earth to hit it.

Johnny Appleseed planted trees for drinking, not for eating and mostly because the government was encouraging homesteaders to plant orchards.
