Who's America's Favorite Apple?
Originating in Iowa in the 1870s, for more than 50 years the Red Delicious apple has been the number one apple in America. But over the years, Red Delicious has also had a fair number of detractors. Some have called it "tasteless" and seen the apple as a symptom of the industrial farm move to grow produce that looks more appealing on supermarket shelves than it tastes.

Read on to see the top 5 apples in America as well as a host of other popular varieties.
