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.

Pomme Grise

Product Details

Unknown Parentage, Europe, 1800s

In his 1872 classic Selected Fruits, Charles Downing describes the Pomme Grise as a Canadian apple, though likely with French or Swiss origins. Pomiferous agrees, adding that Pomme Grise might be a russeted mutation of Reinette Grise, which I find entirely possible considering the apples' similar shape, texture, and taste.

Regardless of its past, Pomme Grise is a wonderful apple to enjoy in the present. I agree with Downing's assessment that Pomme Grise's "excellent flavor" is "tender, rich, and high flavored." I'd also add that the fruit tastes bright and sweet, with a crisp and sufficiently juicy texture.

Pomme Grise trees are precocious, scab-resistant, and thrive in our low-mainteance orchard.
