I'n my area the emphasis is just on getting an apple of reasonable quality to grow, rather than growing a perfect variety. Gala taste like you would expect. The early (Daybreak) Fuji is not quite as good as a normal fall Fuji, but it ripens at a good time . Crimson Crisp is excellent sweet/tart crunchy apple, but not a vigorous tree on B9. Grimes is sweet and similar to Golden Delicious but with more complex flavor.
These apples need about another week before they are perfectly ripe, but I had to pick some early in order to have something to sell on Saturday!
