How Many Types Of Green Apples Are There?

A couple years ago received a request – “How many types of green apples are out there in the world?” An answer supplied by member Koala_Bear:

“Well, to start with, there are over 7500 varieties and it depends on what you mean by green as most if not all start out that way and can be eaten or cooked that way. Bramley; Pippin; Granny Smith; Codlin can be green or yellow and many others are golden; Crispin; Fuji, Flower of Kent; Greening; Greensleeves (hence their names); Jonagold; Lord Derby is usually used while green; the Laxton is mostly green (and many other types are green with minimal stripes of red or pink or gold); Reinette; Snow; White Joaneting; White Transparent – these three are pale so are they white or light green?

So I guess the answer is – lots!
