The grocery I was in today had organic Tsugaru apples on sale for 99 cents/pound. I'd never heard of this variety, so googled (to make sure it wasn't another name for one I knew), Wikipedia told me that it's a cross between Golden Delicious and a Japanese variety, and compared it to Honeycrisp. I bought two, mostly out of curiosity.

Whoever compared this to Honeycrisp must have gotten a better (individual) apple than I have in front of me, which I'm not going to bother to finish. It's a little juicy, not crisp, and the flavor is off somehow; I don't think it's actually musty, but it doesn't taste apple-y either. Ah, well, I have some Hudson's Golden Gem apples, and most of a bag of Moroccan clementines, in the fridge.

Bummer. I got a bag of bosc pears and some golden delicious apples at the food bank today. I think I'll try to find energy to make a pear tart.
