Chris, say it ain't so!!
With over 7,000 know varieties of apples worldwide, I think you could surely
find at least one you could fall in love with! For me it's a fresh picked
home grown Royal Empire. Honeycrisp ain't bad either, but give me a Royal
Empire any time!
We have all of these varieites for many reasons such as disease
resitance,etc. but taste has played an important role. And taste varies as
much as there are people in the world. Flavor is why we have cultivars and
grafting. We know that a variety perpetuated through seeds eventually loses
it's original flavor and characteristics. Grafting to rootstock assures us
of maintaining the true original qualities of the cultivar plus many other
things. Ergo, NAFEX!

him of not being able to differentiate texture from flavor. He doesn't
for them when mealy ripe which I do. For myself, a Red Delicious apple
in storage and no longer crisp is a delicious apple. For my wife and I, a
day old Mutsu is the very best apple! Even Gold Rush becomes eatable after
And I thought it was only my father growing up at the end of the
during WWII who liked mealy apples. But given the variety in the world
to be someone else. Growing up, my Dad would say - try one of these,
really good! Many times it would be a mealy awful apple.
I admit I like a crisp apple, but there's other soft apples that I like
such as Yellow
Delicious. I'm even happy when I find them starting to wrinkle. But
I've ever tasted, many Red D's and most MacIntoshes have been soft,
low sweetness and not much juice. Turns me off of eating apples.
