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.

Sergeant Russet

Product Details

Sport of Golden Delicious, New York, 1964

Sergeant Russet redefined the standards by which I judge how much we enjoy an apple. True apple bliss means eating so close to the core that an errant tooth exposes the seed cavity. Sergeant Russets beget this behavior, especially from children.

Sergeant Russet has exceptional honeyed sweetness combined with top-notch aromatics and tantalizing acidity. The apple defies physics in that it is firm yet yielding, crunchy yet melting. This must be what that divine original Golden Delicious fruit tasted like.

Like Golden Delicious, Sergeant Russet trees are somewhat prone to scab.
