Hawkeye is the originial Red Delicious. This is the legendary apple that old Jessie Hyatt took to Mr. Stark -- the apple that gave rise to a whole new industry. No cardboard here -- the Original really is Delicious! No, not beautiful red wax images of apples, but the real thing.
Color is typically "buckskin" in the south, red striped in the North. Flavor is crisp, juicy, and mild, and much better than a Red Delicious you find in the grocery store.
The tree is vigorous, slow to begin bearing, but bears annual full crops. Hawkeye is susceptible to scab, but resistant to fireblight and mildew and almost immune to cedar apple rust.
