Set-It-And-Forget-It Late Apples

I was the one who came here looking for advice, so take my advice with a grain of salt. From what I have gathered, thick-skinned, hard-flesh apples are most resilient to bugs. Perhaps the variety that has recieved the most attention in this regard is Arkansas Black or Yates, but there are others. You may have to store the apple for some time (months) before eating it. Also, Enterprise may be a good compromise between fungal disease and insect resistance. I am going to try out a bunch of different varieties (~20)- I’ll let you know how it goes in 5-10 years!
