I'm not an Apple expert but location and time of picking can make a huge
difference. Time and temperature in storage and length of storage will
change apple taste and texture.
And not everyone's preference of texture is the same. I had a variety
"Fall Gold" purchased from Stark Brothers Nursery some years back which
my son thoroughly liked. It was very crisp, cracked like a small
firecracker when you took a bite out of it and juicy with a bland
flavor, I did not care for it in the slightest. Mutsu tends to be on the
soft side, sweet and very flavorful which is one of my favorites and he
didn't care for it at all because it isn't real crisp. Primary for my
son is texture, for myself is taste. Texture and taste are subjective.
