Paulared‘ apples are bright red with some yellow and tan spots. The skin often has a dusty sheen.

The flavour is sweet and tart, juicy, with a crisp white firm flesh, that quickly becomes mealy. They are excellent for eating.

They are also good for applesauce, because they become extremely soft when cooked. They are not good for pies, but can be combined with firm apples in a pie. Paula Red applesauce needs little or no sugar.
