    @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.

    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.
