See this 08-07-2020 message from Reid's Orchard, one of the producers at the Sunday Bloomingdale Farmer's Market:
Hard to believe another week has gone by but indeed how time marches on! For the orchard, that means another apple variety to bring this week: PAULA RED. Paula Red apples are an attractive apple, reminiscent of the more well-known McIntosh. They have white juicy flesh with a sweet-tart flavor profile. We suggest you keep these in the fridge as they will get soft if left a room temperature but will keep very well in a fridge!
Perfect for eating and for using in sauce, pies combined with EarliGold and Zesta! as well as cobblers and crostadas.
