There are thousands of apple varieties — more than 7,500 to be exact, though most don’t make it to your local supermarket. So many incredibly delicious kinds of apples are purely regional delights (and you lucky folks know who you are). 

Still, there are lots of delightful choices no matter where you live, and no matter what your kitchen mission. We’ve highlighted several kinds that are commonly available in grocery stores to help you choose the apple that best suits your needs.

Looking for something crisp and sweet to toss into a beet salad? A Fuji might be the apple of your eye. Want something tangy and juicy for the perfect melt-in-your-mouth apple pie? A Braeburn or a Granny Smith could be your best bet.

Aside from color, flavor and texture, you’re a wise apple picker when you remember that apples are #1 on the EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce — so choose organic whenever you can and step away from pesticide residues in YOUR favorite apples!

Now, go pick your apple and make something delicious.

SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM- ALL
By: directioninc

SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM- ALL Organic.  How about Pink Lady and Ambrosia? ALWAYS at least one apple a day in our family- husbands lunch, salads, stuffing wonderful winter squash, etc.  Really miss the good ones during the stone fruit season.  The organics from SA don't compare with ours in the US.

I love Jazz apples, they seem to have a short availability season but are sweet, juicy and firm.  Yum!

Your new website format is

Your new website format is terrific. It looks great (no more font colors against background colors I could barely read), and is so much easier to use. I like that there is interesting content available before you even log on. I had so many problems getting the old one to work on my tablet I'd about given up.
Great job!
