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.

(Cortland x Cox's Orange Pippin) x Golden Delicious, Rutgers University, 1964

You might know NJ55 by another name.

NJ55 was developed through the PRI Cooperative Breeding Program, an ongoing collaboration between Purdue, Rutgers, and the University of Illinois to create delicious, scab-resistant apple varieties.

The first thing one notices about NJ55 trees are their incredible vigor. A year after transplanting, our NJ55s were bushy, 6-foot saplings ready to produce a substantial crop of delicious fruit. Though scab-resistant, NJ55 has been noted for its susceptibility to fireblight and cedar apple rust.

The NJ55 apple perfectly combines the honeyed sweetness of Golden Delicious, the acidity of Cox, and the crispness of Cortland. You'll have all winter to enjoy them, as NJ55 apples keep for 5 months in cold storage.
