6. braeburn
Braeburn was the first of the new wave of bi-colored supermarket apple varieties, and re-established the importance of flavor in commercial apples.
7. winesap
They’re tart, even spicy, with a distinctive flavor and aroma of wine. Not everybody likes to eat them raw—their flavor is a bit strong for most—but those who do are passionate about them. They tend to be smaller than most apples in the supermarket, and are not as often found in typical grocery store produce sections—although they’re a good-looking apple, small and round and colored a deep, dark red. Winesaps are often used as cider apples as well as in baking and sauces.
8. gravenstein
They’re round and reddish-green, with a thin skin and lots of juice. The taste is tartly acidic, with a strong flavor and a touch of sweetness. Its taste has been described as reminiscent of white wine, and it makes an excellent baking apple. Its personality really comes through, however, in ciders where its tart flavor makes for a deliciously dry drink. Gravensteins are considered an antique variety now, and there has been renewed interest in it as an heirloom apple.
9. granny smith
They have a mild flavor with a good balance of sweetness and tartness, and are surprisingly durable—they hold up well under shipping and can sit in cold storage for half a year without going bad. It’s an unremarkable apple for raw eating, but does very well in sauces, especially applesauce.
10. fuji
Fujis are sweeter and crispier than many other apple varieties. Maybe that's why they're MY personal favorite apple variety. Fuji apples also have a very long shelf life compared to other apples, even without refrigeration.
