fruit share, week 9
Descriptions of this weeks fruit share from North Star Orchard..
Stellar Apples (yellow and smooth) Wow..crunchy! Juicy! Flavorful! 'Round here, we like these way better than Honeycrisp. The combo of sweet flavor and crisp and juicy texture make these a real winner!
Razor Russet Apples (greenish/yellowish/russeted) Not to be confused with Asian pears...these are indeed apple-shaped! Slightly sweet and juicy with a great texture. These are one of our favorites for snacking.
Hosui Asian Pears - Super-sweet and yummy! Eat these right away or store them in the fridge to eat later in the week. I eat these skin and all; there's really no bitterness to the skin as there is in some other Asian pear varieties. Have a napkin handy!
Magness Pears - A sweet and juicy 'European' pear. These will need time to get a bit soft though, so let them sit on your counter for a few days until you can dent them with a finger. This can take 3 to 6 days, so you've got plenty of time to eat your other fruits first.
