The more reliable varieties for your region include:

Cox Orange. Aromatic dessert apple. Yellow flesh.
Red Delicious. A good winter apple and very resistant to fire blight.
Golden Delicious. A fall apple of good flavor that bears sooner than most varieties. Also a good variety to plant with other apple trees to ensure good pollination.
McIntosh. An all-purpose red apple.
Johnathan. A popular apple but fairly susceptible to fire blight.
Fameuse. Old variety similar to McIntosh.

Many are self-fruitful but if you plant at least two of the above, you should have a heavy crop from both.
