Had a taste testing this afternoon right in my front yard. My husband, his friend, my brother-in- law and I were testers.
From left to right: King of Pippins, Honey Crisp, Fuji, Hoople’s Antique Gold and Rubinette.
King of Pippins. - texture simlilar to Golden Delicious. Comments included sweet, apple sauce flavor
Honey Crisp : crunchy, juicy, sweet, most pleasing taste.
Fuji ( not fully ripe) :texture semi- crisp, sweet, rose water flavor
Hoople’s Antique Gold: texture- Golden Delicious type, chaulky(our friend said) a little tangy, apple flavor. Hubby likes the texture of its russet skin.
Rubinette (a little rot, may affected taste). Crisp texture. Tangy. Nothing to write home about.
Honey Crisp is the tastiest. Rubinette is the least favorite.
This are apple from my yard. They got too much water from the summer to now.
