If you dream of bickering like an old married couple (or if you just happen to think you’re smarter than your spouse), then this is the fruit for you!

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★½

The best word to describe this apple is perky. It is a lovely little apple that is perfect for snacking. Nothing is wanting here. It has an ideal balance of sweet and tart. I suppose it could be the slightest bit juicier but I’m happy to avoid having to wipe my mouth after every bite (um, yes I might be a messy eater but that is NOT the point here). If you see this apple, you should buy it.

NOTES

When I bought this apple, I carried it up to the counter, paid my money and asked to borrow a black marker to write the name of the apple on the bag. “Blushing Golden” the slightly older gentleman said. “Blushing Gold!!!” a woman behind him corrected. “I planted the thing!” he piped back. “Yes, you planted it and I kept track of what it was. Blushing Gold.” she said warmly looking at me, but clearly flirting with the man next to her. “Fine.” he conceded.
