Chieftain Apple

October 20th, 2009 | Fruit Maven

If you smile at the thought of the first day of school, pencils, brisk windy days, and leaves falling, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★½☆

Striped rusty red and gold, pale yellow flesh. Rustic looking, like it just fell right off the tree.

AROMA Rating: ★★★½☆

Slightly sweet herbal smell

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★½

Crunchy, great snap, good juice – ideal apple texture

TASTE Rating: ★★★★½

Sweet with a slightly spicy taste

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

This is what a red delicious apple should be, but isn’t — perfect, spicy sweetness, snappy bite with ideal juiciness. This is what Fall is all about.
