It is days like today when I take a bite of my apple that I have to jump online and tell anyone within earshot of this great experience.
A Pacific Rose apple, if you have not already had the pleasure to try, is an apple that is seasonal and hard to find and rather spendy vs. other apples in the store. The thin skin on the outside lends to a beautiful crunch when you bite into it. It is sweet, but not overly sweet. It is crunchy. There is no tartness. It is the perfect eating apple.
The first season is from New Zealand from June to September, and just when you start to crave them again, they come back but from out of Washington from December to March.
So if you haven’t tried this amazing treat, run to your local produce section and check it out! Let me know what you think?
