    Default apples

    All I see in the stores here anymore is Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious and Granny
    Smith... What happened to Macintosh and Jonathan? I miss Macs. I'd rather
    have a bruised Mac than a "ripe" Red "Delicious"

    Macs are harder, like "cooking apples". Red Delicious are "eating apples".

    I think stores are reluctant to sell lesser known varieties.
    Do apples grow near where you live? If so, go to the orchard and
    choose from a dozen varieties. I like Mac, Cortland, and Baldwin.

    Many varieties are grown though

    Red "delicious" are hard pieces of carboard.

    Give me a Mac anyday, especially if it's raining.

    I need to go to ValuMarket. It's a bit farther, but I've seen Macs and
    others there... Prices are higher, but worth it.

    Most everyone I know will eat a red delicious apple. But some won't eat any
    other kind. Also some apples don't transport as well or keep as well.

    I don't like Red Delicious at all. They're tasteless. My personal
    favorite for eating out of hand are Jonathans. McIntosh make the best
    applesauce. I like Galas for stewed apples. I use mostly Granny
    Smith's in pies because they hold together but I like to throw in some
    other kind as well. The worst apple pie I ever had was made with
    Golden Delicious apples.

    you are making me mad... and jealous.

    can you email me a couple? I want to eat healthier and the grocer is making
    it difficult... I had Penn Station fries for lunch today, but she was over.
    And tbh, I love their fries too... Split a large order, and I had an
    enormous amount.

    That price is about what a bag goes for here. I got a bag of gala the other
    day out of anger.

    Have you tried Jazz / Scifresh apples? I discovered them last year.
    They are quite good -- very crispy and juicy. Last year's crop tasted
    better, though.

    I saw Jazz at Kroger... But I want Macintosh or at least Jonathans... Jazz
    seemed not much different than Gala. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Do you have access to any farmstands? I am passing many here in
    Massachusetts that have many older varieties, and I even saw a
    place with heirloom apples! I need to explore that one.

    there is a fruit stand down the street that just opened back up. I'll try
    there tomorrow.

    That's a possibility. I don't mind driving to the orchards, but my relatives
    can be pretty demanding with my apple delivery services.
