Thanks to the technology of CA (Controlled Atmosphere) which is where they basically put the apples to sleep, apples are usually available year round. I live in apple country I love to get my apples fresh off the tree. I worked in an apple warehouse for 16 years and packed fresh and CA'd apples. and had apples all the time. Now I work in a pawn shop and miss be able to have one when I wanted. My favorites are Blushing Goldens, Granny Smiths, and Golden Smoothies. I make pies with them too with a crumble topping.

Best apples are "Ambrosia" apples - but i think they are kind of "local" and not well known or distributed. They are similar to gala, which I also like (but sometimes find a bit sweet).
Not a fan of Delicious - as a kid these were the main kind available and they were invariably dry and mealy and not sweet, blecccch! HOWEVER if you happen to get one that has been properly harvested (*after* after a hard frost), they are shockingly quite good. But it's rare to get one straight-off-the-tree like that, unless you live in orchard country.
My least favourite (unsure of the name) is the dark red, tall, yellow grainy fleshed one. It tastes like sadness. Does anyone know it's proper name?

Interesting list of apples we have for our favorites.
I was looking up on-line information about the many kinds of apples. I found a bit of info about Yates, which is often used as a cider apple, like Winesap. I also found out that Jazz, which I really like, is a cross between Gala and Braeburn. And even though I do not like Granny Smith (except in pies and with caramel dipping sauce), I found out that Braeburn is probably a cross between Granny Smith and Lady Hamilton. And even though I don't like Golden Delicious, I found out that my favorite apple, Cripps Pink, is a cross between Golden Delicious and Lady Williams.

For eating plain I like Fuji, or Honeycrisp if they go on a really good sale. For adding into things (like baked goods or oatmeal), I prefer Granny Smith. Even used one recently to grate up and add to a lean ground pork burger.

I can buy Braeburn apples most of the year in our local grocery store (I live in a very small town). I like them a lot. I also can often buy Gala. I could buy red and golden delicious, but I don't like either. The store also sells Granny Smith, but I don't like those, either. Occasionally, our store gets in Fuji. I also like them. I have too bought Honeycrisp, which are outstanding, Jazz, and Cripps Pink (PInk Ladies), oh so good! These are my favorite apples in order:
1) Cripps Pink 2) Honeycrisp 3) Jazz 4) Braeburn 5) Gala 6) Fuji
What are your most favorite and least favorite apples to eat raw?
