An Apple A Day

Due to a posting error, you've likely already seen this, but I thought I'd provide a better explanation.

A lot of the apples we buy here have translucent areas in the center - the condition is called "watercore" or "glassiness." This is a disorder, but as a result the apples tend to be sweeter at harvest, and are thus preferred in some foreign markets.

I'm headed to the States tomorrow, but not to worry, I've prepared a few posts in advance to keep you entertained while I'm away!
