I can only say that the storebought apples have been pitifully low in 
sugar. The apple that was by far the highest in sugar (specific 
gravity as measured by a hydrometer) of all the local and store 
bought apples was an apple I have of unknown origin. Ed Fackler says 
that Florina is so sweet that it is too sweet. Since he tasted the 
apple I mentioned previously I can assume probably that Florina is 
sweeter (or he would have said so). I haven't tested Wickson Crab or 
Florina yet, hoping to fruit them soon. I will do another test this 
year and will let you know, we'll try Honeycrisp and see how it 
rates. I would expect Liberty to be fairly high also, in a good year.

PS, to do your own tests a hydrometer (sp?) is cheap, less than ten 
bucks.  A juicer works great as a way to extract the liquid for the 
testing.
