Ben Davis Apple

by Fruit Maven

If you have one of those unusual diseases where you like to eat paper, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★☆

Green and red stripes, pale yellow flesh

AROMA Rating: ★★★☆☆

None

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★☆

Firm but not particularly crunchy, medium juice

TASTE Rating: ★★★★☆

Extremely mellow with the slightest sweet flavor – so mild that it is bordering on watery and bland

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

This is an ok apple I guess. It isn’t offensive in any way, but that isn’t really an endorsement. If for some reason you don’t like apples and yet you feel you should eat them for health reasons or something, then I guess this would be a good one because it is all texture and very little flavor. At least its better than the Golden Delicious but that isn’t saying much.
