I love the Washington grown Golden Delicious apples.
Are Fuji apples a OMOMOCalifornia-only fruit? My fave.
The Washington grown Red Delicious are my second choice after the Golden Delicious.
Fuji apples are popular here in NY, too. I don't know where they're grown, though. Large chain grocery stores carry them, but they're much smaller than the ones I get at the local greengrocer.
I tasted my first Honeycrisp apple last month, and I wish I could find them in more places! A cross between Macoun and Honeygold apples, they're both sweet and tart, very juicy and crunchy.
I like Pippin(sp?) and most tart, green, apples. Even crabapples are tasty but I can't find them outside the midwest.
Pink Ladies, Jonathans, Galas... Yum.
I love this time of year
as a kid, the only kind of apples i encountered were red "delicious", golden delicious, and mcintosh. the latter were the only vaguely palatable ones, ut i preferred the crab apples from the yard hands down.

i wasn't much into apples until moving to california, where i don't
like the summer fruit at all. my favorite apples are pink lady, fuji,
gala, and braeburn.
That's because you live in the desert where cactus is native.
Move to the Sierra Nevada foothills up around Loomis, Meadow Vista, and follow that band north about 75 miles. Ther is some seriously beautiful land that grows great apples and stone fruit.
That's ENE of Sacramento about 35 miles on I80 toward Reno. Any of the land to the north is magnificent all the way past Grass Valley and Nevada City.
this week i don't live anywhere in particular :)
tonight denver, tomorrow omaha...
The only apples I really don't like are Golden Delicious. I only like the Red Delicious is they're really crispy and not the least bit mealy (which they can easly be). I am losing my taste for the Macs.
When it comes to pies, Granny Smith reigns supreme.
