As a child my favorite type of apple was a bright yellow, golden delicious apple. And it was the 1970s when there was limited apple variety. The choices were basically red or green, but you would occasionally be rewarded by discovering a yellow apple in the fruit bowl. That first bite would be an explosion of sugar in your mouth. That was one reason that I liked them, but they were also more likely to be crisper than a standard red delicious apple.
