I recently read that apples are among the fruits and vegetables that retain the most pesticides, so it's better to buy organic. I was pretty bummed because, at least at the stores I shop at, the organic apple supply is much more limited and I haven't seen any Pink Ladies (my favorite variety).
Anyway, this has been my second attempt at buying organic apples, and both times (and all four varieties I tried) have been mushy and mealy. I HATE mealy apples, the whole reason I like apples is because of that fresh crisp snap you get ... and I'm wondering, is this common with organic apples? I didn't run into it very often with standard apples, but it seems that every organic one I've tried has been this way. Or maybe I've just been unlucky lately?
