Gold apples

Auriana | Sep 27, 2010 08:41 AM

I've read that a lot of people really like Golden Delicious and Ginger Gold apples. I had my first Ginger Gold today and dumped it after two bites. It was reminiscent of Golden Delicious in its bland flavor and mealy, mushy texture.

What am I missing? I'm on the West coast, and I've heard that Golden Deliciouses are superior on the East coast. Can anyone fill me in?

By the way, I used to be a Gala muncher, but recently I'm all about the Honeycrisps. I think they're the best apple on the planet for out-of-hand eating. For baking, I stick to Granny Smiths.
