  • Apple - Stayman

    Once, when driving the backroads of central Virginia, I saw, and stopped at, a large pavilion full of apples for sale. I tried one, and it was amazingly good, like a combination of a Granny Smith (crisp, tart) and a sweet variety like Honeycrisp. I asked the name and was told "Stark Stayman". I now realize that the "Stark" part was the apple's origin, and Stayman the variety. I was told they were at their peak just in the few days when they began to "turn" color. I will return one day to that place.
