Judging the Freshness of Apples

How do you know when you're picking apples from the grocery if they're fresh or not? Run your fingers over the skin of the apple, if it feels smooth, it's a fresh apple. But if it feels like the skin is rubbery or wrinkly, it's not a fresh apple.

I'll add a ripeness comment. If you are looking at Red Delicious apples, do not select the ones that are the most beautiful developed color of red all over.

Those are a tad more over mature than the ones that look like they are headed in that direction.
