The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Cox's Orange Pippin x Dutchess of Oldenburg, Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Breeding Research, Germany, developed 1930s and introduced 1962

Having survived both rigorous testing and aerial bombardment, Alkmene is another apple rich in both history and flavor.

Sweet with a balanced tartness, Alkmene apples are wonderful for enjoying straight from the tree. The crunchy, crispy, juicy flesh contains a nice blend of apple and fruit-punch flavor that's neither too aggressive nor too meek.

Alkmene trees are resistant to fireblight, moderately-resistant to scab, and bear fruit at an early age.

Brix: 14
Harvest: Mid-September
Flowering: Mid-Season
