Apple Variety Reviews

Paula Red Apples One of the things I have come to love to do on this website is review different varieites of fruit. There is so much out there. If you get stuck on eating the same type all the time, then you are missing out on what’s out there. Apple season is in full swing, and since they are so many varieites of apples I will be busy reviewing them this fall. Below you will find my complete list of all the apples I have had this year. I will be adding more throughout the season, so check back!

I categorized the apples into these categories: eating, baking (such as pies), and cooking (such as applesauce). So apples may be listed in multiple categories. This is just my opinion. For example, I may list Granny Smith apples only in the baking category but there may be someone out there that lists to just eat them out of hand (I don’t!).
