red delicious is bright yellow

Though I really don't like Red Delicious, I have 2 of them that have been bearing for a few years now. Every year they have put on just a few small fruit that are bright red and shiny, with that bland, uninteresting Red Delicious taste. This year, they put out a fairly heavy crop, got larger, and are a bright yellow with pretty decent flavor. I know heat and drought must have influenced this, but is this common? My other red apples were normal.

RE: red delicious is bright yellow

Excess heat can take the red color out of fruit. Sometimes it is replaced with a moddly yellow. What surprises me is that you would have larger fruit during this event.

I've had some pretty good RD fruit from the older strains.
