What are your top ten apples in Feb-April. Are these ratings based on how they taste within a few weeks of harvest? The harvest season is short compared to the season of taking apples out of storage.
You don't consider Baldwin a top 20 Hudson Valley apple at its peak flavor? I am near you, in Putnam County and tend many orchards within 50 miles, and at the right sites (very well drained), Baldwin can achieve great quality. At the wrong sites, not so much.
