I like apples.

I really love apples in chicken salad with walnuts, or just stuffed into my mouth with cheese.

Or wrapped in phyllo & baked with - just name it.

My own sole tree is Granny Smith.

Indeed, a good Cox's Orange Pippin or a Braeburn for me.

Thumb Up

Cox's Orange Pippin and Braeburn, I have not heard of those in a while.

+1 for naming an obscure apple variant.

Obscure?

They are both available anywhere that sells fruit here in the North Bay ... Braeburns pretty much all year long, COPs in season. I have four of each in my mostly Gravenstein orchard.

Obscure apple varieties...

Cox's Orange Pippin and Braeburn are both standard varieties in UK. You can get them in Sainsbury's all year round.

Re: Obscure apple varieties...

Just goes to show how crap I am at buying apples, I always go for red golden delicious first and green ones second.

I never think to root for different kinds but I will now.

I am told that my grandfather, a smallholder, described these apples as neither golden or delicious.

I agree.

Well I guess 'Green Tasteless' was probably vetoed by the marketing department. Can't imagine why.

Just added to my existing Egremont Russet - can't beat it with a bit of Wensleydale - with a Spartan, a Rosette, and a quince: Vranja.

I am also big fan of Apple. And I really miss Steve Jobs.

tenuous connection

Actually that Steve Jobs fellow does have a connection with apples (which is what this thread is all about).

He apparently worked on an apple farm in the early 70's and then founded a computer company after said fruit. It has become quite popular since too.

Back on track, though, I far prefer the small, wild crab-apples. Their high pectin content allows for lower amounts of added sucrose when making apple jelly and they taste superb in apple pies.

@ Kerryagain

"Apple is quite better than Samsung!"

Quite correct. Apples should be crunchy ... Samsung takes it entirely too far.

Apple sauce, Apple pie, Apple juice & Apple cider are nice.

Samsung sauce, pie, juice & cider? Maybe not so much.
