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.

Spitzenberg crab x Newtown crab, Albert Etter, Humboldt, CA, 1944

Albert Etter believed Wickson to be the foundation on which the Northern California apple champagne industry would be built. Though local growers turned to other "crops," increasing numbers of orchardists from across the country are now re-discovering this diminutive (1-2") apple as an exceptional fresh-eating and cider variety.

Wickson has a unique grape-apple flavor combined with an incredibly high sugar content, intense sourness, and juicy texture.

As you swallow your tastes buds experience immediate withdrawal - "must...have...more....WICKSON." Of course you oblige, and before you know it there are 6 whittled down Wickson cores next to your keyboard and you wonder where the last ten minutes went.

Brix: 21
