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.

Lucombe's Pine

Product Details

Unknown parentage, Lucombe, Pince & Company Nursery, Exeter, UK early 1800s

Lucombe's Pine is a missed opportunity. Why would nurseryman John Lucombe name the apple after himself when he could have named it after his partner Benjamin Pince? Would a sugary, spritely "Pince's Pine" or "Pince's Prince" have fallen into irrelevance?

Though apples from my Lucombe's Pine trees have tasted decidedly more like tropical fruit than simply pineapple, I'm not mad. It's still darn delicious. The flesh of Lucombe's Pine comes off in satisfyingly big chunks, and the apple's flesh is crisp, crunchy, juicy, and bubbly.

Lucombe's Pine trees thrive in the low-maintenance orchard as they're scab-resistant and vigorous.

Brix: 14
