The best tasting apples that grow in your area? Worldwide? So many apples to
choose from! And taste is so subjective.
If I had to pick only one apple to live with it would be Jonagold. It does so
much so well. But I would much rather have other apples to complement such as
Hudson's Golden Gem, Belle de Boskoop, Freyburg, (which, incidentally, is
described here by having a licorice taste. I don't like licorice, but I love
apple) Gravenstein, King, Akane, Melrose, oh, there are more, so many more!
Good luck,
