I planted this tree two years ago. Thought it was a red delicious, thought that was what the tag said when I bought it from Home Depot.  This is the only Apple on the tree.  Took the picture on Sept 15. Is this a red delicious or a different Apple.

Thanks in advance.

The apple looks more MacIntosh-y than Red Delicious-y to me.

yep. looks like a mac to me . honey crisp is more yellow. but I've never picked my honey crisp under ripe either. mac is a great apple too. my father has a mac tree and he harvests when a frost has hit them for best flavor. we're in zone 3b tho.

Thank you.  I'll see what it does next year.  The apple tasted really tart.
