Gala apples are as mellow as it comes for apples with a floral aroma and simply sweet hints of vanilla. Gala is a great snacking apple and ideal for chopping and adding to a salad. It’s not the best apple for baking, but freezing or juicing are great uses for Gala apples.

Pink Lady®

This firm, pink-hued apple has a perfect sweet-tart flavor and effervescent finish. Pink Lady® apples have high sugars and high acids that make them slow to oxidize, or brown, when sliced. It’s a great apple to snack on, slice on a salad, freeze, and definitely to use in any apple recipe you’re making.

When you bite into a Honeycrisp, it’s the real deal. Extreme juiciness and sweetness makes this a fan-favorite. The Honeycrisp’s unique cells present the ultimate bite experience with a clean, crisp fracture. Because of all that juice, Honeycrisp is the apple to snack on, place atop a fresh salad, or pair with cheese. Save the baking for another apple variety, as the oven is not where Honeycrisp should be!

Granny Smith

Granny Smith apples don’t hold back when it comes to tartness. It’s a firm apple with distinguishing, bright-green skin with loads of lemon-lime-like acidity and a splash of sweetness. It’s one of the best varieties to bake and cook with, a favorite for dipping with peanut butter, and it won’t brown quickly, making it ideal for salads, fruit platters, freezing and more.
