Chris,
Now you have my curiosity up: I'm going to pick up some Jonagolds from the
grocery store to try. While waiting for our trees to get big enough, we have
supplemented our annual supply from the local research station program, and
the times I buy from the store I have put directly into recipes. I suspect
that the Jonagolds you have tasted may have been picked or stored
incorrectly. (Almighty $) I'll report back.
