Know your apples

I just found this chart and think a lot of people (like me) will be able to benefit from it. I love apples, but can never remember which are sweeter or more tart or what they are best suited for. This chart will help. Make sure to click on the image to make it bigger. Hopefully you will be able to read it. Here is a link to the original which is a bit easier to read.

This is cool! Thanks for the information. Now I won't be standing there in the produce section scratching my head wondering which one to buy.

Since you provided the chart, you are now responsible for filling in the info for missing apple types.

Where do Cortlands fall on this chart?

There is no such thing as Cortlands. There are 12 types of apples. If it is not on the chart then it does not exist.

Cortland is a crossbred McIntosh. It's been around for about 100 years.
