If you're ever in the Gettysburg/Carlisle area of Pennsylvania in the fall, check out Peters Orchard on Route 94 just south of the Adams/Cumberland County line. They have an amazing variety of apples, more than I've found at any of the other local farm/orchard stands.


Eastmont Orchards in Colts Neck NJ has a wide variety of apples...check ou their site...over 15 kinds of apples this year

It depends what you are using them for. If I want a good applesauce, for example, I use a McIntosh or Winesap. But for pies, it is the Jonagold. The firm body like a Golden Delicious keeps the filling from turning to applesauce, while that sweet Jonathan-like flavor allows me to back off on the added sugar and let the apple taste through.

macintosh for eating , granny smiths for baking pies (sometimes mixed with macs) and galas for my tart tatins- they really hold their shape.
And NY apples are the BEST.

In my humble opinion, candied apples are best made using Macintosh apples. Without, nuts.

Johnathans of Jonagolds, I like them ice cold. Ida Reds are another favorite. For cooking I like Granny Smith or Golden Delicious more often then not a mixture of both.

Honeycrisp, hands down! I have been known to pass up dessert for a Honeycrisp apple.

As a child, I loved Golden Delicious apples. Today I like them crisp with a bit of tartness. Honeycrisp is my current favorite, but Rome Beauties are also a favorite: good for eating out of hand and for cooking. They make great applesauce and pies.

HoneyCrisp according to the catalog is an outstanding dessert apple. Mild Sweet flavor. We have picked them at a nearby U-pick here in Indiana and thought they were better flavor than Golden Delicious. Better for eating fresh than cooking.


A little over reach. Since last fall Honeycrisps have been so expensive that a lot of stores stopped stocking them. It was all the talk at a fruit growers meeting I was at in December. Everyone was holding back  ... "I'm gonna get my price on the Honeycrisps, and a good thing because everything else is so cheap" (especially the old standby red delicious which was hardly worth picking last fall). Well they waited too long, and now the Honeycrisps need to be moved. I bought some beauties at Price Chopper in Massachusetts today.......perfect and about .7 lbs each (that is large) at $1.99 per lb.

We added a couple of Arkansas Blacks to the orchard a couple of years ago, that gives us 3 of them, 2 Fujis, 3 Prairie Spies, 1 Rome Beauty, 2 Earliblaze, 1 Red Delicious, 8 Golden Delicious, 2 Honeycrisp, 12 Granny Smiths and a couple of fruiting Crabs for pollenation.

Add in the 2 Asian Pears, 2 Moonglow Pears, 4 Plums, 5 Sweet Cherries, 2 Plucots and 4 Apricots and you can see that we must spend some time with our trees each year !!! We don't count the native Persimmons (4) and Hickory Nut (6) that we don't tend at all.

Definitely the Red Delicious... for health reasons, I've been eating more of them, and other fruits, in the past few weeks.

I agree with the Honeycrisp crowd.  I can only get them 4 - 5 months out of the year.  Are they not harvested all year?

I've thought of Al over the last few weeks as I finalized my tree order for the spring. I've still not ordered any of the Arkansas Black that he was excited about, because they are a little too late for my liking. I'd have loved to discuss the Harrisons that I have ordered. Harrisons are possibly the best cider apple, ever, but they were thought to be extinct, because the FBI cut them all down during prohibition. A few years ago a guy hunted one down, that the FBI missed, and now people are planting a lot of them. I've also ordered 10 Cameron Honeycrisp. The Cameron is an early coloring version, that colors before it is even fully ripe. (The original Heneycrisp does not color all that well) There is speculation in the trade press that Camerons, picked too early, will kill the Honeycrisp gravy train.  The new "it" apple is Evercrisp, which is sold out for next spring.

Just discovered Pink Lady Apples at Costco. Did some research. They're very highly regarded.

They're sweet and very juicy. Where have they been all my life.

My favorite apple is not a variety but is instead that unwanted, misshapen sphere that would fall from the tree and lay in the the grass until it became soft enough to hurl at the tractor-trailers decelerating down the off-ramp behind my parents' house.
 
As much fun as the apples were, tomatoes were waaay better.

Melrose, the official State of Ohio apple. Ohio also has an official state fossil. And despite what lleechef says it's not me.

I've always been a big fan of the Winesap. Nothing beats it for flavour. Sadly, they have a slim window and very few places carry them anymore. The Macintosh is also a nice one. From my childhood when I lived in Rhode Island I liked the little crab apples that we occasionally would find that were candied, (like the red candy apples). The sweet and sour combo was unique and really tasty. And it was food on a stick.
