    The U.S. Apple Association shares facts and recipe ideas for the Paula Red apple.

    Female Speaker: Meet the Paula Red. I love its red blush over a yellow green background. Paula Reds are a charming combination of sweet and tart that's ideal for snacking and making apple sauce.

    The Paula Reds comes by way of Michigan and is one of the earliest apples to arrive during harvest season. That mean you may find them fresh as early as August. If you love to entertain, like I do, try a tray of sweet tart Paula Reds, apple chicken sausage, savory cheese and toasted crackers. Yum!

    The USDA recommends 1 to 2 cups of fruit per day and a small apple is about one cup. At just 80 calories, the Paula Red or any apple variety is an easy and fun way to reach your health goals, enjoy the Paula Red.
