Good advice on using different kinds of apples in pies. I never thought of it.

My favorites are honey crisps and cameo. Hard to find in the stores tho. Report
How about the lesser known fruit? Passion fruit is a power source of nutrients, according to studies, and most of it pointing to some medicinal benefits. If you are suffering from high cholesterol levels, cancer, constipation, or coronary heart disease, then this fruit could play a key factor in your recovery. While the fruit may not always be easily available, has an all natural passion fruit juice in Markizza Passion Fruit Juice available on Amazon. It’s all natural and refreshing, not from concentrate. Read about passion fruits to see for yourself. Report
I'm a huge fan of the softer apples. The harder ones are almost too fibrous...But they do taste good with peanut butter. Report
I like golden delicious, pink lady, and gala apples for snacking. I totally agree with the person who said that red delicious tastes like red mediocre! The skin is too bitter and ruins the apple for me. Report
There are so many common apples that are not listed here. Would have liked to have seem a more comprehensive list. Report
I love apples! I take some with me to work and they are filling too just gotta wash them real well or buy organic which is hard at times. I also am an avid fan of GoodBelly, which is a vegan and dairy free probiotic drink. I've been hooked since 2008 as soon as I heard about it. It helps with digestion, IBS issues and supports the immune system. Report
Love Honeycrisp apples! Zestar apples also make my mouth water. But SweeTango is my new favorite. All began in my home state of Minnesota! Report
After eating Honey Crisp and Pink Lady apples, you'll never want to eat a Red Delicious again. In my opinion, they're more like Red Mediocre. Report
I love every variety of grown. I eat 3 or more per day. They are convenient, easy to digest and low in sugar/fat. LOVE THEM! Report
I love apples! Although the article says to refrigerate your apples, I have found that they taste much better at room temperature. For that reason, I only put the apples we will eat the same day in my fruit basket in the morning. Then they are room temperature and ready to eat for a snack or at mealtimes. In addition, seeing them out reminds me to make them part of my nutrition planning and they make a pretty table decoration! I eat at least one apple a day. I checked out the link in the article that led me to the mention of Tammi Flynn's book "The 3 Apple A Day Book." I plan to take a look at this book. Report
I recently got a ceramic knife from my son for a gift. I realized that it's the transferrence of metal to the fruit that causes it to turn brown. I can cut an apple with my ceramic knife and two days later that apple is still bright and ready to eat - fabulous! Now I only use a ceramic knife when cutting all of my vegetables (they cut better too!) Report
Good to know to put those apples in the refrigerator and they will last longer. One of my goals is to eat an apple a day. Honey Crisp apples are my favorite. This was an informative article. Report
Green apples - especially Granny Smith - will help ease the discomfort of heartburn. My favorite apple of all time is the Northern Spy from the east coast but in Califormia we can't get those. Strawberry delicious have a delicate flavor but the regular Red Delicious are a little mealy to my way of thinking. Give me a beautiful unbruised Macintosh or a Braeburn any time. The Fuji are good too but a bit pricier. Report
Been a MAC girl all my life UNTIL I had a Honey Crisp!!! OMG THE BEST EATING APPLE EVER!!! This Vermonter loves apples!!! :-) Report
I'm not so sure the "shiny skin" rule in the article can/should always be followed. Some of the non-organic apples are waxed by the stores to help them appear shiny. Therefore, they may appear less fresh than the organic ones which are not waxed. And, some stores keep apples in storage for months, which is why we often see them out of season. I read in another article that they way to tell if fresh is by putting some pressure on the stem. If it is pliable, then probably still fresh. If it is dry and breaks off, then probably not so fresh. I have used this as a better indicator. Report
