[NAFEX] Field testing apples for potential use in cider

I've decided to take my scrumping efforts to 
a new level and add some quantitative tests 
to my qualitative "take a bite" scrumping test.

I'm now checking fruit ripeness, pH, and 
sugar level.  What I want to do is catalog 
local "wild" trees for my scrumpy efforts and 
get a better idea of which ones are worth the 
trouble to travel to and harvest from.

I've put some photos on my Facebook account 
to share with all of you, and I'm interested 
if any of you are doing similar "auditioning" 
of scrumpy candidates.
