I just updated the What’s Growing? page and didn’t realize how many fruit trees we have until I listed them all down. Below is the list so far, not even including all the grafts that I have made.
I harvest various Apples, Pears and Asian Pears from our garden to make an Apple and Pear Crisp.
One of our Apple variety has splotches of semi-translucent areas inside the fruit. It looks mushy, but isn’t. My Mom says that this is normal and it tastes a little like Pineapple.
I didn’t remember to take a photo of the unpeeled Apple. I’ll have to check the tree and take a photo.
Anyone happen to know this Apple variety?
