      We have been pulling these out of the bottom drawer of the frig, and can't believe how good they are in February!

      Great surprise! Almost better than my all time favorite, golden delicious - the kind from a local farmer, not the grocery store

      Picked and ate my first today at a local farm. Best apple I ever had. Great for everything given it's flesh, texture and taste!

      To me this is the best apple to pair with caramel! On a stick, or slice and dip!
