I love apples. Ever since I can remember, I've been eating them. By themselves, with a little bit of caramel, stuck on a stick with a bunch of weird red goo all over it - apples are just generally great.
One of the best things about apples is how many different varieties of them there are. If you're anything like me, you've probably thought to yourself, "Boy, I wish I knew which kind was the best!" After discussing it at length with many of my fellow apple aficionados, I've decided to take on the challenge of determining which variety is the greatest of them all.
So far, my friends and I have established a list of the best varieties of apples the world has to offer. That list can be found right here.
However, we are but a few, humble apple-eaters, and in order to scientifically determine which is the greatest variety of them all, we need your help.
Please leave a comment regarding any kind of apple you have an opinion about, and then rate it on a scale of 1 to 10 (1=Gross!; 5=Apple, 10=Best ever!). Feel free to even rate the crappy kinds! That's half the fun! Like Red Delicious apples. Seriously, what is their problem?
Also, if you want, feel free to leave a little note about each variety you rate, telling why you loved or hated it. For science!
Anyways, I'm going to keep track of all of the responses and include them in the above spreadsheet, which will be the home for this project. If I get enough data, I'll probably do some cool summary statistics, and maybe even some cool charts and graphs!
Thanks for reading. I know with your help, we can really get to the "core" of this issue!
