When we asked you to nominate the best Michigan apples on social media, one thing was clear: it's probably not the Red Delicious.
@MichiganRadio Red Delicious is one of the blandest, mealiest, toughest-skinned apples that we grow in Michigan. SO MANY better options!!

@MichiganRadio I always reach for Red Delicious, because I guess I'm a masochist?

According to the Michigan Apple Committee, there are almost 2,500 varieties of apples in the U.S.
Many of those can be grown in Michigan (though not all at a commercial scale), so we want to know which kind is most popular.
