Jonalicious


We were out and about today...stopped by the orchard. I was on a mission...hoping to find Jonalicious apples. Roger had never tasted one but had heard me talk of them. He has a new favorite apple now! They are simply wonderful...sweet and tart and the juice just runs! Not supposed to be good for baking, but who cares. They are just a wonderful eating apple. And yes, they are a cross between a Jonathan and a Red Delicious apple. And no, I don't like Red Delicious...even when I worked at the orchard, I could not eat them. If I was test tasting them, I took a bite to see if the sugar was coming in to them, but spit it out, most of the time. And if I wanted an apple to eat, I would get down and go find another variety.

They look yummy, I've not heard of this type before - I wonder if we get them here. I must have a look next time I am shopping. I hate when I try an apple and there's no taste to it. Can't remember the last time I had a nice apple.
