Canada Red Apples were probably first identified in western New York State, USA, in the early 1800s. The actual orgin, though, is thought to be near Toronto, Ontario, Canada. At the time, the apples were called “Canada Red.”
The name changed in other areas, though. By 1822, the apple was also being called “Nonsuch” in New England, and in Michigan, it became known as “Steele’s Winter Red.”
