granny smith, Arkansas black, red or yellow delicious, macintosh, and most others (except Honey crisp) work well in zones 7- 8.

Low chill Apple Trees is what's good. I really like Anna apple, but Fuji Apple is the most popular. Gala Apple is good, and Granny Smith Apple is the green tart one. These are the staples.
 
That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
