[nafex] keepsake

I'll throw in another vote for keepsake, in the upper midwest. though 
ours are not exactly the best looking apples we grow, they are one of 
the tastiest.  seems that popularity is lower just for the simple fact 
that they are later season, at least in this neck of the woods.  We'll 
sell them here at out first winter farmers market and they always do 
well (after sampling, of course).

we picked ours about a month ago and now they are really quite amazing.  
In the past when I used to buy apples, I'd keep keepsake in the root 
cellar for 3-4 months and they'd start to get shrivelly skins but the 
texture would remain crisp.  I'm not sure quite how long they would last 
under controlled conditions.
