I have almost side by side Honeycrisp trees, one with virtually flawless, shiny fruit, the other with somewhat duller fruit permeated with sooty blotch & flyspeck. Go figure (and please let me know if you do:-)

Winesap is much cleaner than Baldwin although they are close in season, for example and Winesap has that shiny sheen that even a clean Baldwin lacks. As far as AFM, it seems they are drawn to early ripening varieties as well as whatever is reddest at the time of their emergence.
