Let's see, we have the Red Delicious and Gala which are the most popular apple types
. Then following behind, there's the Braeburn, Granny Smith, Rome Beauty, Jonagold, Pink Lady, Cameo, Red Delicious.... the list goes on. Incredibly, there are around 7000 varieties - but only about 100 of these are commercially produced.
So what do I think? Well, to be honest, fairly mundane and dull, but quite edible. Overall, a bit overrated, but then that could be my bias creeping in ;) Compared to other fruits, there's not a great deal of variation between all the different types of apple...
Having said this, it is a better fruit to eat if peeled, so add a few points in that case. [Back to top]
