Lots of things in the natural world have crazy names. Many animal species are called weird things, the names of groups of animals can be even stranger, and some species of flora and fauna are even named after celebrities. One of America's favorite fruits, the innocent apple, is no exception. And some of these apple names aren't so innocent. What are the coolest names of apple varieties?
Some of the apple names listed here are probably not what Johnny Appleseed had in mind. Apples like the Bloody Ploughman and the Winterstein sound more like characters from "Game of Thrones" than a delicious fruit that belongs in Grandma's apple pie. Though apples are a delicious fruit, full of fiber and sure to help keep the doctor away, these apples aren't messing around.
You won't find the Golden Delicious apple on this list. These are the coolest apples in the fruit world, and they have the awesome names to prove it.
