    Any type of apple will do me, as long as it isn't ***** from the supermarket. Flavourless crap.

    Granny Smith. Or any green, firm textured, bitter sweet apple. I hate the powdery, thick skinned, sweet apples. Yuck!

    I don't like apples that much. Cider is good.

    Do tinned peaches count?

    Went to an Apple festival last year (nobody can tell me I don't live life to the full) and was lucky enough to get hold of a bag of some peculiar Hampshire Cox varient. They were absolutely fantastic but have proved impossible to secure from anywhere else :(.

    Funnily enough, I don't eat apples too often but I was given one earlier this week & it was the tastiest apple I've ever had.

    It was from New Zealand & red, I think the name is Luvya or something along those lines, does anybody know if these are commonly available?
