Picked a couple of State Fair apples today. They’re pretty good but need at least a week on the tree still. A very bright flavor, tasty but not fully developed. I expect some of the sharpness to recede into the background a bit as they finish ripening. They got decent size and have colored up beautifully. I think it would take a little more heat in the weather to bring out their best flavor.
They are really good for me, more sweet than tart I would say. Very fruity tasting, a bit like grapes. Plenty of heat here
Scott, what do you think of the texture? Mine this year aren’t nearly as dense as I like, but they’re my earliest apple and that counts for a lot.
