@ossobuco,
I really like the Stayman Winesap, it has a real appley flavor. Also up there is the old fashioned "Winter banana" Its a floral high sweetness flavor kinda like a pawpaw. Here in th east where Mr Chapman was spreading his seed, we have many varietals of apple that have been grown and developed since they were first brought over.

Winter bananas are at their best around ST Valentines Day and then they start to soften. BUT, they are great for tarts with berries and like a flan base.
MMMMMMMMMMMM, finest kind.

The ones in the supermarket all are sort of flavorless and not well textured. I may check Kroger, but I suspect theirs are from the same source.

The green apples retain their tartness. Those are some tough apples.

@edgarblythe,
If given one for free, I'd eat a McIntosh apple. Given a choice I prefer other types of apples. Fujis being my favorite kind.

@Region Philbis,
That is crazy. My 2 favorite apples are Granny Smiths and Fuji... I've never seen this chart before.

@McGentrix,
My favorite eating (as opposed to.cooking) apple is Macoun. Tender skinned apple with just-right sweet/tart taste.It doesn't travel well so shipping it makes for low quality beyond New England. We buy it most often in apple picking season in central Mass, NH or midHudson valley NY.

For eating pleasure, my second fave is Honeycrisp but not the huge ones we seem to get sent to Fl. The ones I get in NE that are medium sized .

Granny Smith is great for baking if a tart tasting pie is desired. Jonagold also hold up well in baking in apple pies and are so tasty.

Don't care for McIntosh apples. The texture annoys me.

I've never eaten an apple that was at just the right development without thoroughly enjoying it. Made no difference to me what kind it was.
