Honeycrisp is my favorite hands-down. A great firm texture, not too sweet or tart, just the perfect balance. In fact I bought some today on sale from the grocery store.

Surprisingly, here in the Philippines, apples are very nice and cheap and always readily available. Tennis-ball size, 15c/US each all year, crisp and sweet/tart, but a bit mealy during the summer months. I understand they come from China, as apples cannot be successfully grown well here. There is no label to reveal variety, the Chinese have probably created their own.

I like Granny Smith apples but I don't buy them often because my kids find them too tart. They prefer Honey Crisp or Gala.

My parents recently purchased me a box of Juici apples from Costco. They are a very delicious hybrid of the Honeycrisp and the Braeburn.

They are also large and nothing like cardboard despite being an American fruit. There is plenty of tasty fresh fruit in this country, I especially love apples and cherries myself.

Thatís my list with apples Iím just eating plain. Gala and Fuji, usually. My grocery store usually has them at $0.99 per pound. For desserts, I normally bake with Granny Smith.
