    Beautiful red color and interesting red veins throughout, but sadly that's about all this apple has going for it. Rather insipid and slightly bitter, with a mealy texture that is more akin to applesauce than an apple - it leaves much to be desired with this apple. Definitely not a desert apple and I will not be buying more of these.

    Bo- With tender skin and medium-to-mildly crisp flesh, this apple is the california-roll of apples. Nice and mild for the whole family.

    Bitter, watery, mealy. Yuck! Gorgeous color, red veins in the flesh, icky for eating out of hand.
