 Golden Apple Every year the editors of Apple Journal run an informal, un-scientific taste test of as many apple varieties as possible. At the end of the year we go through our notes and rank our favorites. The rankings shouldn't be taken too seriously, as there are so many variables such as personal preferences, year-to-year variations, and ripeness of the apples when they are tested.
