This is an apple
This is an apple. It's a "Ginger Gold" apple. I placed it atop the toaster.
I bought this apple yesterday. It's from the 2011 New York State crop.
Guess what? It's not been waxed. It's not been polished. It's not been refrigerated.
It's been brought down to Florida just as it is. Why - there's even a leaf attached.
An un-waxed, unpolished, recently harvested apple with a bit of the leaf left on! Who'd have thought it possible to buy such an apple in Florida. I like it!
(Shhh - don't tell a soul that I bought this at Wall Mart)
(from one who misses very many good things in the north eastern United States, especially in autumn the proximity of apple orchards).
