[NAFEX] Apple flavor

I came across this website that judges various apples for eating, baking, 


Under the section Apple Tips it says: All apples continue to ripen on 
storage and become, sweeter, though proper
refrigeration slows this process.

If this is true would it be best to wait until spring to purchase apples 
such as Fuji and Gold Rush if you don't care for tart apples? It almost 
sounds like apples that have been in storage for a few months have a very 
different taste than those fresh off the tree. For some reason this never 
really occured to me. Last winter I preferred Gala as the best supermarket 
apple for me.
