      I had this apple at Aomori in Japan fresh in the farm. This is by far THE BEST APPLE IN THE WORLD! extremely intensely sweet and very pretty refined flavors that are on the soft side not spicy. The fruit is crisp and juicy and is over 1 kg in size per apple. freaking amazing.

      Unless you like a huge, overpriced, bland, tasteless apple with no depth of flavor, don't bother. Very, very showy but no better than a bad Red Delicious
