    My 4 year old daughter just delivered a newly purchased Apple from the grocery store that she already knew was my absolute favorite breed of Apple. She picked it out herself. My question is, why didn't God quit inventing apples when he made the Granny Smith?????


    It might have been the best Apple ever grown...with all emotional feeling towards the gifter discredited...it was a phenomenal Apple.

    I have tolerance for honey crisp as well

    Winesap was my favorite red apple but I guess they are not as profitable to grow?

    It's been awhile since I have seen any for sale.

    My favorite is Red Delicious, but wonder what happened to the old June Apples. Don't see or hear much about them nowdays,

    Granny smith is great for cooking but too tart for me to eat raw. I prefer gala or honeycrisp for freah eating...but granny smith makes the best pies and cobblers to me since they are a little firmer than the sweeter apples.

    You must be really bored. I'm surprised we didn't get a pic of an apple with a bite out of it.

    Gala or Honeycrisp. There's an apple orchard on top of black mountain in Harlan county that grows phenomenal Honeycrisp. We were up there working on one of Chesapeake's gas wells last year during harvest time. A buyer was there and as the tractor went up and down the rows the workers were picking apples and putting them in a big crate. If the tractor fender brushed up against a tree and knocked an apple off, the buyer wouldn't take it. Guy that owned the orchard let me and my helper fill two five gallon bucket each of the "ground apples" for $5. Time I finished off my two buckets I didn't want to look at another apple for a while.

    Jonagold and Fuji for me. We go to Carter Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville, VA every fall and pick them with the kids.

    My 16 year old daughter started me on Ambrosia Apples. Many different types are good, but not all of any type are good. I've had Golden Delicious that were great and other Golden Delicious that tasted like cardboard. It is all about how and where they are grown and the sugar content.
