Star Apple (Caimito)

May 3rd, 2012 · 1 Comment · Apple, Sapote

I love brightly colored fruit. It takes what I already think is super fun and just multiplies it times a billion. Plus I’m a sucker for star patterns in fruit, so I was ecstatic when Specialty Produce let me know they had gotten a few of these in stock. Star apples, or caimitos are also [...]

Listen to the Apples Falling All Around You

April 17th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Apple, Quotes

I was about to write about White Indian Guavas today, when the following quote caught my eye on Facebook this morning.  (You are friends with me – right?) It captured me from the first words and then of course locked me in it’s grips by the end. True Confession: I haven’t read this book, nor [...]

Lady Alice Apples

March 20th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Apple

Today is the first day of spring and we are smack dab in the middle of March, my least favorite month for fruit. I’m generally tired of citrus by this point (although Pixie and Shasta tangerines can still catch my eye here and there) and the lovely berries are just beginning to show up but [...]

Apple Inc. planting fruit trees on their new campus!

March 15th, 2012 · No Comments · Apple, Maven

Adam over at Adam’s Apples posted a link today that I just had to share from one of America’s most loved and hated companies, Apple. This wouldn’t necessarily be news in my opinion except that Apple planting apples is somewhat clever and I’m a bit of a sucker for that kind of thing — like [...]

Pear Thyme Scones

January 13th, 2012 · 7 Comments · Apple, Pear, recipe

Today I am bringing you one of the most comforting, toasty, tender baked goods I have ever made, not to mention one of the easiest. In the last week I have made this recipe no less than four times and I don’t think I will get tired of it any time soon. Other members of [...]

Opal Apple

January 12th, 2012 · 7 Comments · Apple

What a surprise! This apple seems pretty late in the season to show up at my grocery store so I was delighted to see it just sitting there near the end cap. I know of course, that ALL apples just sit there. But for whatever reason when it is a fruit I’ve never seen (or [...]

Comparing Apples to Apple

January 11th, 2012 · No Comments · Apple

Finally! Finally, there is a reasonable infographic I can share here on Fruit Maven. I completely, ridiculously love infographics. Many are tacky or mindless marketing drivel. But it doesn’t seem to matter. It is borderline irrational how much I enjoy the graphic display of data. I really should go back to school for design and [...]

Cool Tool: Apple Slicer

January 4th, 2012 · No Comments · Apple, Tool

I’ve decided to add a new (hopefully weekly) column to Fruit Maven where I highlight cool fruit oriented stuff that I find on the internet. If I’ve used it, I’ll let you know. If I make money from you buying it, I’ll let you know. If I just think it’s kick ass, I’ll let you [...]

Aurora Apple

December 22nd, 2011 · 4 Comments · Apple

Despite having tasted over 45 different varieties of apples, I still find new ones just sitting there at the grocery store tucked between the Granny Smiths and Galas. I have to say that I am insanely lucky to live in Southern California. We just have so much access to so much! I’ve never really talked [...]

Ambrosia Apple

December 2nd, 2011 · 6 Comments · Apple

If you’ve been wondering what kind of apple lured Snow White, then this is the fruit for you! Aptly named, the Ambrosia apple, means fruit of the gods. And while I like to imagine that the gods are a little more imaginative than a straightforward apple (see the tiger striped lemon, caviar limes, pink fleshed [...]
