It’s Zippy Tip Tuesday!
My friend Sandy and I used to go to an apple orchard up in Michigan every fall to pick apples. A gruff old guy owned the place. And when you pulled in, he grunted out the usual rundown of all the different types of apples he had, as well as their location. All I can say is that it’s a good thing there weren’t any video surveillance cameras on the premises. And I mention that for 2 reasons:
1. More apples went into our bellies than we care to admit.
2. Invariably, the best apples were out of our reach, and I’m sure it was a real hoot watching us attempt to climb up to the higher branches to retrieve them.
But eventually, we filled the bags that we brought and took them up to show Mr. Personality Plus, who eyeballed the whole of our harvest and charged us a ridiculously low price.
So I thought it’d be fun to give my own rundown of 7 apple varieties (one for every day of the week), by describing their color, texture, flavor and use. For information on the other 7,493 kinds of apples (more or less), visit Orange Pippin: The comprehensive resource for apples and orchards.
