Which Types Of Apple to Use For Candy Apples

There are so many varieties of apples. Which ones are best to coat in sweet
candy love?
Have a hankering for a candy apple? Not every apple makes a good candy apple.
You want one with a strong apple flavor that can break through all the chocolates, caramels
and candy. Look for these apple varieties at your grocery.
Empire: Mildly tart flavor, with some sweet undertones. This apple is firm, which means it will
give you a satisfying crunch when you take a bite. This was developed in New York, although it
is a popular apple in Britain.
Fuji: Tart flavor. It is a very firm apple, and will stand up to the heat from the candy coating.

This apple is named after Mount Fuji in Japan, where it was discovered in the 1930s. But it
didn’t it U.S. grocers until the 1980s.
Gala: Sweet flavor and firm. This apple originated in New Zealand. The Royal Gala, one strain
of this apple, is named in honor of Queen Elizabeth II because she preferred it.
Granny Smith: Tart flavor and firm. You can layer on the candy because this variety can
withstand the weight of an epic amount of toppings. Thank sweet Granny Anne Smith, who
discovered this apple in 1868 in Australia.
Haralson: Tart flavor.
Jazz: A newer apple on the market, it’s a cross between a Royal Gala and a Braeburn. Crunchy
and oh so tart and sweet.
McIntosh: Mildly tart flavor. This variety is old. It was discovered in 1811 by John McIntosh,
hence the name (I totally want to name an apple after myself!).
Paula Red: Mildly tart flavor.
Wealthy: Mildly tart flavor.
