Super Chief® Red Delicious

Super Chief Red Delicious

(Sandidge cv.)

An improved sport of one of the most popular Red Delicious strains ever planted, Super Chief® has all the winning traits of its parent, Campbell Red Delicious, but colors 18 days earlier! The tree is extremely spurry, producing a compact tree that throws an abundance of fruit spurs. It starts coloring with a red stripe but by picking time, a brilliant red has evenly covered the fruit and just a hint of striping remains. In addition to its beautiful color, Super Chief® fruit is very typey.
