Title: Apples..
Post by: BringBackEcoKat on November 11, 2015, 09:53:06 PM
Or anything that you can walk around and eat. Is that socially acceptable? I love to eat an apple everywhere that I go and someone informed me while I was eating an apple from home in a gas station that it's not normal.

what do you do when it comes time to pay?  awkward one hand struggle to get cash/card out of wallet/purse or awkward clamping of remaining apple to free both hands?

Equally terrible as red delicious.

Fuji, braeburn, gala, and jonathan are all great.

One of the benefits of apples is their ability to be eaten on the go, but never in gas station or other place of business. In a car or outdoors is acceptable IMO.

I did go into the gas station with said apple because I was there to get a drink and I just hadn't finished my apple yet. Im sure that it wasn't the weirdest thing that the cashier had ever seen because he didn't even comment on it.

Fun Dad tip:

so, my kids eat apples like all the time. one day I offered lil CF3 an apple and he said no he wanted a cookie. So I said "ok how about popcorn apples?" He said sure. So I chop the apple in to like, 40 little bites and serve it in a bowl. Now popcorn apples is considered a treat but its really just an apple which is healthy.

kids are pretty easy to trick

imo, the most important characteristic of an apple for raw eating is crunchiness.  i'm fine with an acidic apple or a sweet apple and don't go too overboard about any of the subtle flavors.  it's all about the texture.

I thought that crunchiness was inversely proportional to age of the apple.

age and growing conditions impact crunchiness, but it's mostly a function of apple variety.  or maybe it's better to say that apple variety delimits the range of possible textures.
