I prefer tart/baking apples for cider. But the elks have eaten my apples every year since I moved to Oregon, so I get my juice from an orchard, which means sweet varieties. I have a mystery tree also, but it isn't tall enough to keep the fruit away from the critters!
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
