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.

Product Details

Unknown Parentage, Ireland, early 1800s

If you're looking for a delicious lad of an apple whose tree withstands hot or cold, rain or sun, look no further than Sam Young. It proved itself in the cool, rainy summers of Ireland, and then spread throughout Britain, eventually making its way into the USDA apple repository in 1960.

Beneath Sam Young's yellow-red striping over a cinnamon russet, you'll find a juicy, crisp apple with a fine blend of sugar and sour and an ambrosial scent.

Sam Young trees are precocious, vigorous, and scab-resistant.

Brix: 14
Harvest: Late September/Early October
Flowering: Mid-Season
