There are many kinds of apples such as Fuji, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Cotland, Empire, Gala, and cosmic crisp but have you ever wondered which one is the best?
The Fuji apple has a sweet flavor with little tartness. However, these apples quickly turn brown when cut. The Granny Smith is a super tart apple “that is known to be the tastiest kind of apple.”
The Jonathan apple is tart and slightly sweet which makes it perfect for caramel apples! The majority of people love Golden Delicious apples for their sweet, spicy apple cider flavor. This flavor is very unique, which mainly attracts people to this kind of apple. The number one apple in the world is the Red Delicious apple. The Red Delicious apple has a sweet but very mild flavor, somewhat similar to a slightly over-ripe melon. Although the most popular apple worldwide is the Red Delicious apple, in the UK, the most popular apple would be the Royal Gala apple. The Royal Gala apple has a sweet, refreshing, pear-like flavor. The Raider Review interviewed 3 students from STA to tell us about their favorite apple. An anonymous 11th grader said, “My favorite apple is Granny Smith because it reminds me of my grandma’s infamous apple pie she would make me every Friday night for dessert. I also love how tart the apple is because I love tarte foods.”
Earl Kulp, a junior, said,“I like Red Delicious apples the best because all the other apples are too sour.”
