About Stamp
Three new stamps designs have been added to the popular Fruit Trees of Canada series. Apples are Canada'most important fruit crop, and the Delicious apple ranks second only to the McIntosh. It was discovered in Iowa in 1872 and named after the state's nickname, "Hawkeye". In 1893, the Stark Brothers took over propagation and renamed it "Delicious" for its creamy white, juicy and sweet texture. It has an oblong shape with a five-crown apex.
