The only Cameo apples I've eaten have come from the grocery store, and 
yes, I thought they were bland (too much like Red Delicious for my 
taste). Of course, I don't think I've bought them again after the first 
bunch, so that's not much of a taste test, is it? And I wouldn't be at 
all surprised if they were better right from the tree.

But considering the number of apple varieties - with new ones showing up 
all the time, it seems - I don't give an apple too many chances. I can 
understand how I might miss something good that way. But on the other 
hand, I don't have room to plant any more apple trees, anyway.
