If you dream about going to the state fair so you can have your head wrapped in pink and blue feathery light strings of cotton candy (and I do), then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★☆

Light green skin with tiny brown freckles, bright white flesh.

AROMA Rating: ★★★★½

Smells like candy apples – a sweet spectacular apple smell.

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★☆

Crispy and very juicy, not quite crunchy but close to it.

TASTE Rating: ★★★★★

Perhaps one of the sweetest apples I have tasted – very reminiscent of cotton candy without the oowey goowey, sticky, cotton mouth thing and minus the awful, lingering corn syrup aftertaste.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★½

I know everyone says they like a sweet apple with the perfect tart balance, but I am not like everyone. I like sweet apples. I can eat tart apples and since I like apples, it’s fine. But if you want to hear me go on and on about an apple – and that is why you are here right – then it’s the sweet apples that really get me going. This one is phenomenal. I almost didn’t buy it. Luckily this apple is named Green Dragon, which is one hell of a kick ass name. And despite the fact that I literally have 22 varieties of apple in my refrigerator (no there is not room for things like milk or cheese, why do you ask) and 20 other varieties that I have already taken notes on, I bought this one anyway (or two or whatever). Let me just jump to the point – I am in love with this apple. I want to cuddle with this apple. Divine and unusual – complicated in its sweetness – it has layer after layer of goodness. Find this apple people. Find it and eat it. Then tell your grocer that next time he or she goes to order a Golden Delicious to slap him or her self in the face and order a Green Dragon instead.
