What is your favorite kind of apple?

My favorite apple for pies is the Granny Smith. For eating I like to eat the Pink Lady or Arkansas Black. What is your favorite kind of apple and what do you like to cook with it?

Granny Smith is definitely the all-rounder apple. Favourite for cooking and eating out of hand, love its tartness. Slices of Granny Smith apple with a good strong cheddar...delicious! Or a chewy italian bread spread with cream cheese, apple slices and some sultanas, also good.

Most times when I'm looking for a general eating apple though I always find myself reaching for Pink Ladies. They are always consistency good, and hard to find a floury one like the occasional Red Delicious.

Haggis, I was going to put Pink Lady on the list, but I ran out of room. They are a great eating apple. That is the one thing that I don't like about the red delicious is sometimes you do get a mealy apple.

For snacking I like green Michigan apples. The big juicy Macintoshes are good to though.

I like and use granny smith for baking , for eating out of hand I have Gala and Fujii apples in my yard, both are great..The Fujii ripens first the Gala a week or two after..They keep us well supplied..The kids love to go out and climb on a box and pick one out themselves...

Kadesma, I see that you like Arkansas Blacks. I first tried one a couple of years ago. My mom and I shared a box of them from Apple Hill in Camino, CA.

SC,
I've only had the blacks once, and I loved it..I haven't been able to find it, but, I'm going to ask at the market I shop at. They have a get it for you board...Of course, when and If I come home with apples, I'm going to get some strange looks with two trees in the front yard

Pink Lady - mmmmmmmmm - my favorite. I wish I could get a bigger variety here - Sierra - if you like Pink Lady I really wish I could try the Arkansas Blacks
