Apples and pears
Saturday, April 17, 2010
Usually I'm a pear person . . .
Apples are one of my least favourite fruits . . . right up there with oranges and grapes.
But lately I've been on a mission to find a variety of apple that I like the taste of. So I've been trialling different types each week.
So far I've tried Gala, Royal Gala, Cox, Braeburn, Cameo . . . and I liked the Cox ones best. The Braeburns were juicy; too juicy.
I didn't expect to like the Cameos but they were actually quite nice.
This week I'll be having Empires.
There's quite a few more varieties in my local supermarket that I haven't tried - Fuji, Heritage, Pink Lady, Fuji. . .
I won't bother with golden/red delicious or granny smith (since I know I don't like them) . . . or the cooking ones like Bramley.
But at the end of it all, I'll probably still prefer a nice crisp Rocha pear!
