Washington Apples? Meh

No sense denying it. There are plenty of Washington residents who do not care for apples. Sure, it seems wrong. You might think someone who lives in this state ought to crave the crunchy sweetness of a Honeycrsip or savor the tart snap of a Granny Smith. But, shocking as it might seem, some Washingtonians are blase about apples. The reasons vary. Maybe it was a simple matter of too many mushy disappointments 20 years ago. Perhaps it's a case of not enjoying shards of apple skin wedged between incisors like a paper cut in your mouth/Paul Turner, The Slice. More here.

Question: I'm not too crazy about apples, beyond Braeburns. How about you?
