Some consider this one to be the best tasting apple, ever. (Golden Delicious x Cox's Orange Pippen) Not the easiest to grow, like the Cox, it is worth the extra effort to get a chance to enjoy this one. Resistance to Apple Scab and Mildew is noted, however, it seems this may very well be location specific as there is some susceptibilty to scab, fire blight, and mildew in other areas. This one you will want to be sure and thin the apples soon enough so that the apples will size up better. An apple enthusiast will give you a big thumbs up in the flavor catagory.
