Washington Apples

Received with thanks from WashingtonApples.com a box with 6 varieties of apples! The apples arrived in an impressive packing in a sturdy box. It was like an explosion of sweet smell as soon as I opened the box. The 6 varieties lay neatly arranged waiting to be bitten, chewed and relished.Apples have been always a part of my family’s diet, but I never gave notice to the varieties! Whichever looked good on the shelf was picked up. The green apple, Granny Smith, which is not available throughout the year, is hunted and brought to table during its season. Rest of the varieties often went unnoticed. This was therefore a learning experience for the whole family.

The first to come under knife was Cameo. Red colored, more fleshy, less juicy, pleasant taste. I took care to remember the taste just to compare with the next.
The Cripps Pink has a sweet tart taste, firm and crunchy flesh.  
Gala was used for the dessert and it did enhance the flavor and taste of the dessert.  
Granny Smith because of its tangy taste has a special place in our hearts.  
Honeycrisp, I now understand why it has been named so, it has a crisp and juicy inner flesh. I think I had this for the first time.
Finally the most commonly available Red Delicious. This one can be seen more frequently on my table. The classic heart shaped apple with a mild and sweet taste of its own.

Have you included apples compulsorily in your diet? I am sure you would have! Every apple has a distinct taste and flavor of its own. The fruit is so rich with food value that doctors fear it as a potential danger to their job! How many varieties have you had?

Thanks to entrepreneurial growers today markets have several varieties lined up for sale. High tech breeders are continuously experimenting to create new strains for every taste, tangy or sweet!
