A shortage of Golden Delicious?

My apple of choice (and let's face it, we all know that an apple a day keeps the doctor away blah blah blah) is golden delicious. Could be learned behaviour, I grew up on them, or it could be the 9 grammes of sugar in each apple, but that's my thing.

Except, they seem to have disappeared. I've googled on a whole host of key words, I've tried to order them at Tesco Online, and I've gone into various Kilburn fruiteries (aka market stalls) and they just don't seem to be "there". No one knows why.

I was forced in to paying 40p an apple in some Hendon fruit shop this morning for a Faux Delicious, which I don't think will cut it. Anyone know the answer?
