I've found that the only apple I can safely eat is the granny smith - more tart, less sweet ...

Even with that, I eat them MAYBE once, twice a week TOPS, and I have only 1/2 of the apple at a time, and ALWAYS with some accompanying fat/protein. IE: 1/2 apple and peanut butter, or 1/2 apple with my breakfast omelet, etc.
I try to buy the small "lunchbox: size Fuji's at my produce market, That way I can eat a whole one with some reduced sugar PB and avoid any spikes. I'll often have that as a snack before bedtime and still wake up with FBG's in the 80's or low 90's.

The only way to know for sure is to trust your meter. Have 1/2 an apple and test 1 hour and 2 hours after. Let your meter be your guide. I have found that many Doc's are seriously lacking in Diabetes education themselves. The last two I've had are terrific.
