it was kind of like a lemon, but like, it wasn’t
I thought yuzu was just pomelo
I like yuzu sauce.
I ate an Asian Pear once…it taste mostly like a pear except with the crispness of a good apple.
4/5 stars-would eat again (and I did! Literally!)
this is the pear I grew up knowing.
when I ate the weird soft pear of the west I was like…dafuq
Why even still make those? I mean, the moment they discovered/grew/invented/bioengineered the Asian pear, the whole world should’ve acknowledged its superiority and outlawed what I refer to as “the original”.
A coop student gave me a box of Fuji apples as a gift at the end of their term. 5 stars, best apple ever. If you haven’t had a fuji apple before, you owe it to yourself to rush out and buy one right now.
Honey Crisp or GTFO
Fuji> honey crisp. Win by a small margin.
Honey crisp is the best, but Fuji and Braeburn are good. Red delicious is trash,
is fuji not common in US supermarkets? I thought I see them often. I still usually choose honey crisp though
I have no idea why other types of apples are even sold.
No, it is actually a hybrid between mandarian orange and Ichang papeda
I actually am not that familiar with papeda, down the wiki rabit hole for me now…
Red Delicious is good for about one week out of the year. Otherwise, It should be discontinued as a cultivar.
Fuji & Honey Crisp get the
Also is the new apple on the block, Cosmic Crisp.
Interesting. I used to go to a grocery store that had a ridiculous variety of apples. Pretty sure I have tried an Enterprise but don’t remember it. Unfortunately I haven’t found a place like that in the new city. Maybe I’ll get lucky and that one will become more common and make it to me.
honeycrisp > fuji IMO.
I like macintosh, but that’s about a month a year.
red delsih is the awfullest. permanently mealy
Sweetango is a newer apple variety that’s pretty good, but only available in the fall.
Super duper fresh red delicious apples are fine, but usually they are mealy and gross.
I usually buy honeycrisp.
Crimson crisp doesn’t have the marketing budget that cosmic crisp has, but it’s better. It’s a terrific apple. It also keeps amazingly well.
Citrus genetics are apparently incredibly complicated and confusing.
I’ve had yuzu-flavored stuff, but I’ve never seen the fresh fruit. It’s delicious, though.
There are a lot of European pears that have richer flavor than any of the Asian pears I’ve eaten. I think of Asian pears as weirdly bland apples.
