You probably won't believe this, but Delicious from Lake Chelan in
Washington are incredibly good and not mealy. I think the growers there
harvest them at the right stage of maturity and store them properly.
That is probably why the best gift packs of Delicious often come from
that area. -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn.

I grow Court Pendu Plat which is reputed by some to be an ancient Roman
It is not nealy at all. Keeps very well.
Red Delicious, now there is a crummy, very popular apple, that I
mealy, or at least odd in texture. Many (most) apples taste better than
Red Delicous. But ohhh does it have eye appeal in the market.
