Pacific Rose

I bought a Pacific Rose apple -- a variety I was unfamiliar with  -- a couple of days ago, and ate it today.

Texture-wise, this apple was pretty much the Platonic ideal of apple.  Very crisp, not even the faintest hint of mushy or mealy, but not at all hard to chew, with a very unobtrusive peel, and very juicy.

Flavor-wise, I'm sad to say, it didn't score anywhere near as high.  Too sweet, very little tartness, and very little other flavor.

I still think the Pink Lady is the best apple variety around.  Hopefully the stores around here will have them again soon.
