- 12 Dec 2012 Paul SchwabeWI, United StatesEveryone loves RedCort, but I still prefer the original Cortland. When RedCort first came out, I sampled the fruit along with plain Cortland and found Cortland to taste sweeter. Informal blind taste tests I did had most of my subjects agreeing with me. Sometimes a redder skin does not mean a better flavored apple.
