New York magazine has compiled a visual list of 28 varieties of apple grow in NY state, including many you may not have heard of before. The lumpy Calville Blanc d’Hiver, anyone?

This amazing apple has three times the vitamin C of other apples and nearly half as much vitamin C as an orange. Use Calville Blanc d’Hiver apples for fresh eating out of hand, or baked in any cooked apple desert. It also makes a sprightly apple juice and hard cider. This apple is the French choice for tarte aux pommes and unlike its rival, the legendary English Bramley, Calville Blanc holds its shape when cooked.
