Wikipedia Article About Cameo apple on Wikipedia
The Cameo is a cultivar of apple, discovered by chance in a Dryden, Washington orchard in the 1987. Its parentage is uncertain; it may be a cross between a Red Delicious and a Golden Delicious, since it was found near orchards of those fruits; it also appears similar to the original Delicious cultivar. It is bright red striped over creamy orange, firm and crisp with an aromatic flavor. It is rapidly becoming a favorite, and is now among the top ten most grown apples in Washington.
