    For the last couple of weeks I've been eating Honeycrisp apples and good gawd are they tasty. Can't imagine an apple tasting better than these. Only downside is they are a lot more expensive than all the other apples at the market. Hope I can get them year round.......

    :peace: :beer:

    I’d have to say iPad. Oh wait, that’s not what you meant is it? My wife is also a huge fan of Honey Crisps. I like plain old Red Delicious and Granny Smith.

    Ditto on honeycrisp! It's the only apple I get excited about. I do also like granny smiths...but not as much as honeycrisps!

    for the last 2-3 years I have been buying honeycrisp. gala is my backup I guess.
    but now that you have brought up the subject I have some complaining to do.
    YOU CAN'T GET GOOD APPLES ANYMORE! good or bad they are $2-$4 a pound
    they are just not as good as they used to be, they have mutilated them all. okay, maybe sometimes for a couple of months in the fall you can get some decent ones.
    am I the only one that has noticed this?
    I used to try to eat an apple a day, or close to it, but not anymore.

    I've found the same thing to be true about a lot of the apples at the market being bruised. The thing I like about Honeycrisps, besides the taste, is that they don't seem to be nearly as mangled as the galas or fujis. I'm paying $1 for the Honeycrisps......but I reckon that is a lot less than a candy bar or other snack and a lot better for me.

    Honeycrisp are a definite favorite followed by Fuji. Love this time of year for new crop apples!

    I used to love Jonathans but they never sell them here anymore. I've heard great things about Honeycrisp but have yet to try them.

    I like a good Braeburn or Gala.

    I hate Red Delicious. Too soft and mealy.

    Honeycrisp definitely; also like Pink Lady and Fuji. It's that time of the year to make some apple crisp - maybe this weekend! :licklips::licklips::licklips::licklips:

    I love Honeycrisps but my go to is the good ole Granny Smith. Love that bit of tartness. I end up getting Fuji and Jonagolds a lot too.

    We have our own mini orchard in our front yard with four different apples, two different pears, cherries, peach and plum.

    Way too much for us to eat and we don’t have storing capability.

    Contemplating setting up roadside stand next season. Means we will probably spray since only @ 10-20% look edible without :(

    Pink Lady, Gala, and Red Delicious ONLY if they're organic (they seem more firm then).

    Definitely honeycrisp, just the right blend of sweet/tart and crispy/crunchy! McIntosh is 2nd, for when I want a soft slightly mushy apple.

    We visit Gettysburg almost very year (located in Adams County-which is known for it's apple orchards, and just north of Gettysburg), the apple festival in September is hugely popular. We drive around the surrounding orchards and buy honey crisps and other apples and applebutter and ship home. They are expensive but soooo good.

    Thanks @MikeOPensacola - fun thread!

    Honeycrisp. I actually found a really good bag of them at Sam's Club - really nice big fat ones too. Nummy.

    I really need to make it to an orchard this year to stock up on them.
