Granny Smith; Grannys are known for their distinctive green skin, which sometimes bears a red blush, and their very tart flavour. An all-purpose apple, Grannys work equally well as a snack but are also perfect for adding more depth of flavour and will not break down when baked or cooked.
Red Delicious; This sweet, crispy, juicy apple varies in colour from striped red to solid midnight red. This apple is best eaten fresh or in salads.
Golden Delicious; Goldens have a pale yellow skin, sometimes with a red blush. Mellow and sweet, all-purpose Goldens are great for eating, baking and salads. Their crisp, pale yellow flesh resists browning, making them a good choice for salads and other dishes.
Gala; This crispy, juicy, very sweet apple is ideal for snacking and best enjoyed fresh. Galas can vary in colour, from cream to red- and yellow-striped.
Braeburn; Braeburn apples are the predecessor of Fuji and Gala apples. Richly tart with hints of sweetness, very crisp and juicy and are best for eating fresh, making fruit salads but will also give beneficial flavour and texture when baking pies. They are equally excellent for juicing and drying.
Fuji; They are sweet off the tree and become sweeter and richer in storage. Very popular apples to eat fresh as they store well for longer periods of time. We do not recommend using these apples for baking, as their softer texture does not hold its shape but does make it suitable for a smooth apple-sauce.
Ballarat; A blast from the past! A traditional cooking apple with an intense flavour and light, fluffy texture when cooked – perfect for cooking with pork, stewing or baking in your next pie, crumble, donuts or shortcake.
