Its Honeycrisp at my house. My son is 17 and its the only apple he'll eat. My 2 yr old grandson comes to visit me and knows where I keep the apples and he dont even want them peeled, he loves them too. And, of course, Honeycrisp is my absolute favorite for eating. They get eaten too fast to use in recipes.

Worst Cooking...Red Delicious was never meant to be a cooking apple. Golden Delicious makes a great French Apple pie. Looks to me like your choices are very East Coast bias. I grew up raising apples and pears in Hood River Oregon and people select fruit based more on looks than taste. Imported apples have killed the American Apple Industry so your choices don't surprise me. My advice do more research and look for less hybrid apples and more old school ones.

My favorite is the Gala apple. They are crisp, sweet and juicy. Just what I want in an apple. PinkLady is also another good apple.
