earl's Faux maybe better as far as flavor in my opinion but production you cant beat Pruden's purple.stump is a little stingy as far as production but delicious.i have not found anything better tasting than cowlicks Brandywine and fair in production.this is just what i have found to be true in my garden.a few more to try would be purple dog creek,Sudduth's ,goose creek,1884,brimmer(this was my favorite 2 years ago),Gregori's Altai .i also hear good things about German queen but have not tried it yet but i just planted seeds of it today

I found Elgin Pink to be complex, very similar to RY.

I can send you some Elgin Pink seeds if you want some.

Earl Faux is more acidic for me and Elgin Pink is just right. Stump is great but is later than others for me.
MOPLA- as is Missouri Pink Love Apple is something I grow every year too.

Rozovyi Myod is an amazing pink oxheart, my fav pink, sweeter than rebel yell but a great producer and the fruit is so meaty
