I only eat them if I don't have a choice and I don't think I've ever had a good one. For some reason they still seem to be popular. It must only be those who've never had a decent apple who buy them.

Honeycrisp Apples.

You'll thank me later.

Is you get them fresh enough the can be crisp and tasty. They have good shelf stability so the stores like to keep them.

They taste like pulp to me.  Honeycrisp or a nice Jonathan, please.

Yep. Best apple out there. Only downside is they're $3-$4 per pound and the apples themselves can easily be over one pound each.

I am all about the Fuji.

Pretty good, but Fujis, followed by Galas are my favorite.

Growing up in Eastern Washington, I get sad when i see what passes for an apple on my local grocery stands.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 9:31:53 AM EDT
I am not a fan of Delicious apples (Red or Golden) but they are popular with a lot of folks.



I prefer a tart apple with a finer grain.  McIntosh are my favorite.

Tier One: Fuji, Gala, and Honeycrisp.
Tier Two: Cortlands, Macintosh, GrannySmith
Tier Three: Everything else
Tier Four: Red Delicious.

RD tends to be mealy, skin is too soft, and they are completely unpredictable in flavor
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 9:34:05 AM EDT
Fuji or Gala are my go to choices.

I used to think I hated apples when I was younger.  I thought they were all those bruised chucks of cork wood they called red delicious.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 9:34:38 AM EDT
If you can get them fresh they are quite good. If not, they suck pulpy balls. I don't even try to buy them from a supermarket.

It boggles my mind as well. With so many good apples out there I don't get why people would buy them

Honeycrisp, Jonagold, Gala, Cripps Pink, Macoun, etc....
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 9:37:15 AM EDT
Lots of great choices out there. Red Delicious is way down the list IMO. They are a commercial apple that holds up ok in cold storage.
Hard to beat a Gravenstein picked fresh from the tree, warmed by the sun.

Honeycrisp = Best = Too pricey.



Braeburn.





Have a honeycrisp tree in the back yard. Not a vigorous tree.  Sissy tree.

Red Delicious apples are worthless. Useful only for feeding to animals, IMO.

For eating raw, I prefer Gala, Fuji, or Granny Smith if I want something tart.

Honeycrisp and Gala are my favorites for eating fresh.  Granny Smiths still rule for pies.  

The key though on all apples, and fruit in general, is freshness.  I brought back 30-40 lbs (a couple of full boxes - I didn't weigh them accurately) of fresh Galas from Eastern WA a weeks or so ago and the family (with help from friends) has almost eaten through all of them already.

Fuji or Braeburn apples for me.

They're good, and retarded expensive. I usually buy Gala or Pink Lady, whichever looks the best. Usually $1-1.50 cheaper/lb. than the Honeycrisps.



I can't spend $12 on a few apples. Not even if they have crack in them.

I have some trees.  They are remarkably disease resistant.  and easy to grow.  they ship well and are the best "keepers" in cold storage.  A marketers wonder apple.  there you go.

They can be very good if you pick them off the tree ripe.

None of the apples in stores are at prime flavor or texture, some handle the: picked pre-ripe/cold storage/delivery, process better than others.

When I was very young our neighbors had 6 large apple trees and we lived in those tree as soon as the apple buds got a round shape.  Sour green apples for me or no apples at all.  Granny smith is what I eat most of the time but love something a little more sour and crunchy.

Holy shit! same here.  Mom used to only buy the big bags of RD... stopped eating apples after I moved out.

Rediscovered apples when a friend let me have a bite of the Fuji she was snacking on and I thought to myself... apples aren't as bad as I remember... until I tried another Red Delicious.

Fuji, Gala and Honeycrisps are my faves...  road apples > red delicious apples
