Would like to know what this apple variety is.

Looks like a Fuji. Depending on how old the tree was and where it was located, could have been eaten and the core thrown away by a hiker or left in animal droppings.

if it a wild apple that came up from a apple core it may be a new one . apple do not breed true and are almost all grafted to a desired kind
