Harris Teeter always has new kinds of apples that I’ve never heard of–this year, it’s a NZ apple called Envy which supposedly doesn’t get brown for a long time. I didn’t like it, btw, not crisp enough and somewhat bland.
My current favorite is called SweeTango and you it’s a cross between Tango and something else. What’s your favorite apple? Now I need to go apple picking…

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: My favorite is honeycrisp, hands down, but I also love Empire. I love going apple picking because I get introduced to so many kinds I don’t see in stores.
…now I want an apple.

Fuji! They are crisp, a little tart, yet a littl sweet. Perfect for dipping in this creamy PB I make: just mix a little PB with greek yogurt. You get all the taste of peanuts, but it’s less calorie-dense. And so so so yummy.

@BlondeBee: Oooh, that sounds good! I like my apples plain or with a wedge of cheese, usually Parrano, Gouda, or Manchego.

I’m a big fan of Honeycrisp, SweeTango, and Pink Lady. 🙂
I have both SweeTango and Pink Lady at home right now. Yum.

I love to eat Honeycrisp and JonaGold (cross between a Jonathan and Golden Delicious) apples raw but I prefer to bake with Rome and Empire. I just got done canning 2 bushels of apples and the smell was AMAZING!

My favorite is an Esopus Spitzenberg, but you’ll never find it in a store. We bought a baby tree last year and will hopefully have our own apples in a few more years. We also purchased a Father Abraham and a Calville Blanc d’Hiver, which are both delicious. From the store or farmer’s market, my favorite is a honeycrisp.

I looove Gala the most but I’m also very fond of Fuji apples. I’ve also enjoyed Pink Lady apples. Usually, I follow my nose when I go fruit shopping – it’s a method that’s never failed me! Not a fan of Macintosh at all though. I also don’t really like Granny Smith on their own, raw.

Gravensteins! They are a type specific to Nova Scotia, Canada. So far I haven’t been able to find them anywhere else, or find anyone outside NS who knows about them. They’re so delicious – crisp, tart, a little sweet.

Honeycrisp are amazing, but I think Fujis are my favorite because 1) they are easier to find and 2) they are more versatile.

Gimme some good ol’ GrannySmith’s – omnomnom!
I can’t stand red apples, taste like ash to me! But then, Im also the weirdo that thought green apples were the “sweet apples” – apparently green is sour, red is sweet? Noway!

@starlitgirl: Gravensteins are also grown here in BC.
My favorite is Ambrosia for fresh eating.

Obviously depends on for what, but for straight eating, Honeycrisp all the way.
