Out on a Limb CSA 2011, Week 4
My mother did the pick up this week, so the above is my selection only. I got: Grimes Golden, Pomme Grise, Gray Pearmain, Nod Head, Tolman Sweet, Benton Read, and Blue Permain.
My mother was most excited about the Blue Permain - she has a Blue Permain tree, but it's too young to bear. It's a lovely apple (it's the uppermost left) - very red. These are actually all pretty striking apples - they have a very heirloom appearance with characteristics like bloom that you don't normally see in supermarket apples.
