We sampled the Honey Crisp and Honey Sweet apples. The Honey Crisp is indeed a very crunchy apple, with a taste that's a bit sweeter than a Granny Smith. The Honey Sweet was also crisp, and just like its name forecasts, is a very pleasant, sweet apple- perfect for eating straight out of hand.
We bought a big bag of Paula Reds, the "seconds". These are apples that aren't totally cosmetically appealing, but work perfectly well in pies, crisps, and other baked apple desserts. They are significantly cheaper than the "firsts".
My son wanted some tart eating apples, so we got him a small bag of Cortlands, which are good for both baking and eating raw.

|Actually sort of scary.|
|I could pose these for my non-existent tin goat to eat.|
