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.

Esopus Spitzenburg

Product Details

Unfortunately my one Esopus fruit fell prey to 'early drop', and so I was unable to photograph a ripe exterior or note its flavor from our orchard.

With that said, I've eaten plenty of Esopus Spitzenburgs from orchards across the country, and I've loved every single one of them. Crunchier apples nay exist, and it's one of the few apples like Cox and Barnack Orange that perfectly combines sweet, sour, and aromatic elements.

Humid Midwestern and Eastern growers take note: Esopus Spitzenberg trees are notorious for their fireblight susceptibility.

Grin observations:
Brix: 14.9
