I love apples this time of year. But I dont like mushy ones, they have to be sweet and crunchy!<br><br>
I am becoming a Fuji junkie! I had a guy in the store tell me that they will stay crunchy if you keep them cool, like in the fridge. I tried it and it worked!<br><br>
I have also had an apple called "Pink Lady" recommended to me, but havent tried it yet.<br><br>
So, what is your favorite kind of apple??

Right now Galas are tasting pretty good to me.<br><br>
There is an old apple tree in my mom's yard that has the very best apples. I think they are called Winesap, and they are so fragrant and crispy!

Mmmm...Honey Crisps are fabulous and the ones I've had are quite large as well. Fujis, Galas, Pink Ladies, and the one I've been eating lately is the Cameo. It can sometimes have a bit of a mushy texture but has been pretty good most of the time, and fairly juicy.<br><br>
Winesaps are a very old variety of apple. My SO is very fond of them, and doesn't really like apples, they're <i>that</i> good.

My favorite are the classic macintosh. But I do love honeycrisps, especially when pulled right off the tree in the orchard.<br><br>
I love visiting Toronto in the fall and visiting the orchards there.

1. fave is the honeycrisp. Can't find them around here this time of year.<br><br>
2. faves are braeburns. The braeburns are still good if you can find the super small ones....less mealy/mushy than the giant ones<br><br>
I don't think I've ever had a pink lady or a fuji.

Gala, Fuji, Honey Crisp, and Granny Smith if I'm in a tart mood.

I eat one or two Granny Smith apples every day.<br><br>
We also have an apple tree in our back yard. Made a bunch of applesauce from the apples off of it. Very good stuff. I couldn't tell you what kind of apple they are, but they are tasty for cooking. Lousy eating apple, but very good cooking apple.

I have to chip in for the Braeburns as well, I first tasted them last summer after a small 5k race. They didn't have much of a selection but I did have 2 of those apples. Very nice...crisp and juicy is the way to be.<br><br>

Studies have shown that phytonutrients found in apples may protect the brain from diseases such as Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s. Quercetin is a natural <span style="text-decoration:underline;">anti-inflammatory</span>, an anti-allergen and has been used to treat skin and prostrate cancers. Epicatechin and other catechins have been shown to reduce plaque build-up in the arteries of animals and to reduce the cancer causing affects of carcinogens in test tubes. Procyanidin or proanthocyanidin is believed to be beneficial in the prevention of heart disease and diabetes. The list of the health benefits of apples keeps growing.<br><br>
I eat 2-3 apples a-day (Granny Smith) - Anti inflammatory - perfect for runners

Dude.<br><br>
I do like Honeycrisp, though. I don't think Red Delicious are not apples at all. I think they are fake apples. Yuck.
