Well apple harvest time has started.
In my quest to eat more fruits and veggies I'm going to eat an apple a day...but I need some recommendations!!
I like a crisp apple when you bite into it.
Perhaps some more obscure varieties as I like going to orchards and getting some to eat.
The ones I picked up at grocery store last week are too soft-no variety was listed.
My fav is Honeycrisp but those aren't ready until end of Sept.
Red Delicious have no flavor too me.

So what are your favorites?????

Mmm ... Granny Smith apples! Crisp and crunchy and juicy!

I eat an apple a day, too. I usually stick to one of three kinds: Granny Smith, MacIntosh, and Red Delicious. For crispness, though, you can't beat the grannies.

Granny Smith is really good. But I also like the ones that are red and yellow. I forget the name of it I will have to find it for you! They are so juicy and full of flavor! Yum! I guess I will be getting one at the grocery store this afternoon!

For eating, my favorite are Gala apples. For baking, I like Northern Spy, Granny Smith, or Jonathan.

Hands down, Macintosh apples are my favorite!!! They are hard to find sometimes though. 2nd favorite is Granny Smith, they tend to be crisper. I also use those in pies. Gala apples are delicious and crisp, as well.

My alltime favourite is Cortland - very crisp and juicy but they are a late apple - i.e., mid-end September, early October. I go to the orchard and buy bags and bags of them. They make delicious pies as well. I wait impatiently every year for these apples and during the time they are fresh will usually go through a bushel or more.

During the winter months I don't often eat apples but if I do I prefer Royal Gala or Pink Lady.

I've seen the pink ladies in the grcoery store I'll have to stop tomorrow and pick some up!!! I have a Cortland and a Weathly apple tree but I don't do the whole spraying routine and they don't bear fruit real well.
Also if you like crisp-try the Honeycrisp apple-they seem to be a bit more expensive and don't store real well so we eat lots when they are available!!
