Doug etl.,

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.
