Top 10 highest ranked varieties


Top 10 Most Popular Varieties:
  1. Pink Lady® apple


    One of the best-known modern apples, Pink Lady is actually a trademark and the variety is more correctly known as Cripps Pink.
  2. Honeycrisp apple


    Sometimes marketed as Honey Crisp or Honeycrunch, this is a crisp, and predominantly sweet, modern variety from the USA. It was developed by the University of Minnesota specifically for growers in cold climates, and is one of the most cold-hardy of apple varieties.
  3. Fuji apple


    Developed in Japan, but an all-American cross of Red Delicious and Ralls Janet. A very attractive modern apple, crisp, sweet-flavoured, and keeps well.
  4. Red Delicious apple

  5. Gala apple


    One of the most widely-grown apple varieties, with a sweet pleasant flavour, and good keeping qualities.
  6. Cox's Orange Pippin apple


    This is the benchmark for flavor in apples - from a good tree in a good year it can achieve exceptional flavor.

    Undoubtedly one of the most important apple varieties of the 20th century, both as a commercial variety in its own right, and as breeding stock for many other varieties. Very good flavor when home-grown.
  8. Jonagold apple


    A very popular commercial variety, with a good flavour. Inherits many of the good qualities of its parents Jonathan and Golden Delicious.
  9. Granny Smith apple


    The most instantly-recognised of all apples, and perhaps Australia's most famous export.
