Here’s a quick cheat sheet, but you can find a full run-down on the 10 common varieties of apples here.

Gala apples: Sweet, fragrant and crisp.
Granny apples: Firm texture holds up well in baking recipes.
Fuji apples: These apples break down well, and are great for sauces.
Golden delicious apples: Mellow and sweet, these also break down well. (This is a great applesauce apple.)
McIntosh: Not recommended for pies (they also break down easily), but perfect for applesauce and apple butter.
