Daliclass is a bicoloured apple with an orange-red striped and flecked blush over a pale-yellow background. The shape is slightly elongated with a blocky stylar end. The skin is quite noticeable on biting, and fairly tough to chew. The pale-yellow flesh is quite hard and crunchy. The most distinctive attribute of Daliclass is the strong flavour, very much reminiscent of old English varieties, and the quite sharp acidity which gives a good balance to the eating experience.
Daliclass is a mid-late season variety.

Consumers who like a distinct acidity and flavour in their apples, as well as a hardness to the flesh, will enjoy Daliclass.
