We have many types of apples in different shapes, colors, shades, and smells produced in various conditions and weather.
However, it is common to classify different apples into four primary colors of red, golden or yellow, green, and white.
Each of these categories themselves is divided into a wide range of shades and blending.
This article will try to briefly introduce these different types.
For example, the Red apple itself has more than 50 kinds around the world; however, we will introduce a couple of them here.
The same rule can be applied to other apple species.
Sometimes you cannot name an apple based on its color because they have a hybrid shade-like color consisting of several hues.
Apples can also be classified based on the region they grow in.
Those apples that are cultivated in colder regions have stronger skin and flesh compared to those harvested in warmer regions that have milder and softer flesh and skin.
These criteria would affect the kind of packaging we use for the exportation of a type an apple.
They also would affect the distance that a type of apple can travel.
Apple can also be assorted based on its taste, ranging from the sweetest to the sourest.
Sweet apples are mostly produced in cold regions while sour apples are cultivated in warmer regions.
Sweet apples are also harvested sooner than those sour ones most of the time.
The packaging and storage of sweet apples are harder than those of sour ones.
Thus the prices of sweet apples would most likely be higher.
Popular Types of Apple
Red apples have a shiny, paste-like, slippery surface which would make them a popular category among other types of apples.
These apples were initially cultivated in the USA by amending and blending the genes of other apples, producing a new breed.
There are substances within red apples that would cause the accumulation of bone in the body.
Hence, red apples are recommended for older adults and women after menopause.
There are many sorts of red apples; however, we try to introduce the most important ones here.
Richard delicious is the darkest red apple, in a way that Iranian would call charcoal apples because of their black-like redness.
There are shinier and firmer than other kinds of red apples.
Thus, their taste is less sweet and leads toward a more neutral flavor.
These features can also be found in Red Starking, although they are known to be firmer.
Due to their firmness, these kinds of red apples have a longer life span, which would allow them to be shipped to longer distances.
These apples are usually harvested during September and October in the northern hemisphere.
In contrast to the dark red color of Richard Delicious, Gala apples are brighter, having a yellowish shade going through their red color.
However, some of these apples are so bright that yellow becomes the dominant color.
These apples are also sweeter than their previous companion and contain a larger amount of sugar within them.
Thus, gala apples are suggested to those who love a sweeter taste but still like to feel the strong flavor of a red apple.
Furthermore, compared to Golden delicious (below), these apples have more extended longevity.
Yellow apples are known to be of greater nutritional value and thus are considered among the best apples.
Probably Golden Delicious is the sweetest apple there is.
Due to the greater volume of sugar in golden delicious, this apple would provide you with enough energy for daily activities.
And as apples do not have a negative impact on the amount of blood sugar within the body, this apple can be a good substitute for receiving sufficient daily sugar.
Hence, golden delicious is highly recommended for people with diabetes.
Moreover, since the smell of these apples is keener, they are being used for the refreshment of different spaces.
These criteria have made Golden Delicious one of the most expensive apples.
In contrast to the red apples, these apples are primarily cultivated in warmer regions, having a milder taste.
Compared with the previous kinds, which were firmer, the flesh of golden delicious is softer and their skin is also thinner.
The soft flesh and light surface of these apples make them more vulnerable to pressure and storage.
Thus, their transportation to far distances is more challenging and should be within special refrigerators and temperatures.
They are also commonly packed in cartons, rather than plastic boxes.
Another highly sweet apple is Grime Golden.
Their taste and flesh are much like that of Golden Delicious; however, their surface is decorated with brownish spots and shade, and their size is smaller.
Due to these characteristics, Grime Golden is hard to be stored.
However, they are cheaper than other kinds of apples.
Late Harvest Apples
Winesap and Granny Smith are two kinds of sour taste apples whose harvest happens late in time.
Winesap can be classified as another kind of red apple that is popular around the world.
Although these apples are also brighter than Richard Delicious, their color would lead towards green and purple instead of yellow (as in Gala).
The green color of these kinds of red apples would make them a closer companion to Granny Smith.
Hence, their taste is sour, and as their name would indicate, there are good for making apple cider vinegar.
Granny Smith can be said to have the sourest taste among apples.
These apples are as firm as those really red apples.
Although their flesh is white, it leans towards a greenish hue.
Thus, they can be packed in bigger boxes with lower temperatures, and are good for the shipment to far distances.
Granny Smith grows in the warmer regions and later than other types of apple.
And, their harvest is mostly late in fall.
It is hard to cover all types of apples within one article.
However, even within this short article, we have seen that apples come in many hues and shades, and their price is based on their different longevity, storage, sweetness, and popularity.
