Really been into the Honey Crisps lately. Typically, I'm a Fuji man.

Usually Fuji but the Honeycrisps I've had this year have been particulary good.

It used to be Granny Smith, but I am allergic to apples now. That wasn't fun to find out!

Did they completely fuck up Red Delicious apples or were the choices so limited back in the day that we didn't notice how horrible they tasted?

So you do like them apples. Hmm, interesting; most people don't.

Myself, I like local, seasonal, farm-fresh apples, like Spartans, Mackintoshes, et al. Barring that, I suppose Red Delicious. I don't care for any yellow-flesh variety, and there's nothing nastier than a soft apple, except a mealy peach.

Re: Which is your favorite kind of apple?

Granny smith.

I never understood why the supermarket shelves are full of the sweet, mushy, flavorless varieties like Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Fuji, Pink Lady, and the like.

Of course, that is the American taste. The liquor department is full of Bud Light, Coors Light, and Miller Lite.

Anything but Red Delicious (Past or present. Never liked them.) Maybe Fuji or Gala.

Don't favor any particular brand as long as they are crisp and green.

Re: Which is your favorite kind of apple?

The only apple is Granny Smith. All others do not exist.


Last year I decided to try more apple varieties.. I bought one of each variety available in stores here.. they were all gross. Too mushy, or too gritty texture, or what have you.. From then on.. only Granny Smith.

And those Grapple things.. those are nasty, vile abominations...
