Cox's orange pippin are my favourite, not too sweet, nice and crunchy. I like gravensteins as well. My local farmer's market has an apple lady, and she has some rare heirloom varieties which are lovely too.

Like you, I grew up with red delicious. I always enjoyed them, but preferred golden delicious when they actually were golden, with a hint of pink. I also enjoy royal gala.

Jonathan is my all time favorite, then Golden Delicious. Don't know why Red Delicious were ever invented, might be its pretty looks, certainly is not its taste!

Honeycrisp for sure, but they aren't always east to find.

I love Macintosh apples but they are hard to find here in VA. I usually have to go to Trader Joes to get them and then they don't always have them. Fuji and Gala are next in line with golden delicious on occasion. I read somewhere that the red delicious apples have been hybrided too much now to get the deep red color and the shape that it has really affected the taste. When they were first introduced they were the sweetest apple around.

We've been on a Gala apple kick for many months now. It's all we get.

Macintosh are also my favorite. It is the same here were I live in the midwest, for some reason they are so hard to find in the stores.

Nothing beats a Pink Lady apple! I had one for the first time a few months ago and now no other kind else compares. The only unfortunate thing is that they're not always easy to find in stores near me. It's basically hit or miss - if they have them there are tons, but if they don't it could be a while before you'll see them again. Fuji apples are good too.
