The apple is considered a consistent staple of the American diet, but its recent history is far more dynamic than what meets the eye. The Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apples, once ubiquitous in grocery stores, have primarily been replaced by crisper and more flavorful varieties.

We talk with apple expert David Karp about the future of one of America’s most beloved fruits.
