Red Delicious apples are unreliable. You think you're getting some nice ones, then they're all mealy.

I bought some Fuji's yesterday after Art mentioned them. They're nowhere near as crisp and tart as Honeycrisp but they're better than Red Delicious.

They've bred all the taste right out of Red Delicious. The skins are thick and tough, too.



Red Delicious apples were really good when I was a kid... but nowadays I can't stand them.

For me, Honeycrisp is the best apple, Fuji is second best.
