Learn About Apples!
Northern Spy - Intriguing name, yet this apple is a professional baker’s dream! An
antique apple still popular because of tart, acidic properties that cook up well in applesauce, pie and other dishes. A hard apple that ripens late and stores well.
Paula Red - A late summer apple! Pleasingly tart flavor and good aroma. Great for baking. Discovered in Sparta, Michigan!
Red Delicious - America’s most popular apple, known for the “five little bumps” on the bottom. Best for fresh eating and snacks. Full-flavored sweet taste, yellowish flesh and crisp texture. Discovered over 100 years ago in Iowa.
Rome - A big, round apple right out of storybooks! Romes have mild, sweet flavor. Most popular for baking because it holds flavor and shape well. A Southern favorite, although discovered in Ohio.
Winesap - Tart, tangy and juicy this extra firm apple not only tastes great, it looks great too! Used often in store displays and at home in wreaths and fruit bowls. Deep red color adds to the festive appeal of this true apple beauty.
Gala - Talk about a great apple: Crisp snappy bite over a mellow sweetness. Michigan’s 3rd most popular apple for fresh eating or cooking. Looks great, smells sweet, eats like a dream!
Cortland - A hint of tartness makes this a great baking variety, used frequently in desserts. A descendent of the McIntosh, this variety is a bit sweeter than its ancestor. Known for its white flesh and excellent flavor.
McIntosh - Classic large, round apple for eating out of hand! Ultra-juicy white flesh, lightly tart flavor and excellent fresh apple aroma. A perky addition to salads. Excellent in applesauce and cider. Also used in pies.
Empire - An excellent lunchbox apple or crunch snack! Sweet and tart at the same
time. Use for fresh-cut slices, candy and caramel apples. Also used in baking. Texture remains very firm, a good storing apple. Popular in Great Britain.
Fuji - New to Michigan’s apple line-up, Fuji is Japan’s favorite apple for good reason! Fantastic sweet and tart flavor, with a low acid content. An incredibly good keeper, Fuji stays crisp for weeks!
Ginger Gold - This sweet-spicy apple has a succulent texture and rich taste. A cross
between the Golden Delicious and Albermarle Pippin. Its mildly tart flavor definitely gets the Michigan autumn apple harvest off to an exciting start.

popular yellow apple, Goldens may be eaten fresh or cut up in salads. Professional’s choice for applesauce or cider, baking pies and other desserts.
