him of not being able to differentiate texture from flavor. He doesn't care 
for them when mealy ripe which I do. For myself, a Red Delicious apple ripened 
in storage and no longer crisp is a delicious apple.  For my wife and I, a 60 
day old Mutsu is the very best apple! Even Gold Rush becomes eatable after
