For the first time in my life, I just ate an “organic” apple.
In general, Fuji apples are my favorite. I’ve tried a number of different apple types, and Fujis just taste the best to me. They’ve always been standard, non-“organic” apples from the grocery store, though.
A few days ago, the SigO and I were in the grocery store, and we decided to get some fruit. In general, the only fruit I tend to like to eat just as fruit from a grocery store is apples and bananas. The bananas were all really green and didn’t look terribly appetizing, and all the Fuji apples looked bruised and battered, though, so I was about ready to just write off the idea of getting fruit entirely for the time being.
The SigO suggested I have a look at the organic apples, at that point. They cost two or three times as much as the other apples, but I figured “What the hell — I want apples.” I headed over there and had a look.
The organic Fuji apples were huge. Fujis are generally some of the smaller apples available, in my experience, but these were some of the bigger apples I’ve seen (not counting that gigantic chocolate-and-nut covered novelty apple I got for Christmas a couple years ago, about as big as my head). They looked to be in better shape than the non-organic Fuji apples, too, so I was able to pick out a couple to buy and bring home.
They sat in the fridge for a few days. Just now, I finally decided to eat one. I washed it off, sat down on the couch, and started eating.
Damn. That was, bar none, the absolute best apple I have ever had in my life.
