Hmm... The Fuji apples I got are big ones too. I looked at Sprouts during lunch, and saw that they had much smaller fuji apples, and I picked up granny smiths as I figure the sourness of the grannies could go well with the pineapples.

What specific variety of apple do you consider a baking/cooking apple?
Bramley's seedlings.

I wouldn't stress too much over the variety of apples. I think any kind would work, some might get a bit mushy, but it's all good!

It looks like they're called Bramley: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening...ng-apples.html

I've never seen them here. It's a big country, though They might be available somewhere else.

Agreed. Fujis are my favorite.
