These are apples that aren’t able to be sold via JA as they are seconds. They have scars, discoloured patches, sunburn, cracked tops and/ or dimples. I can attest that they still taste yummy!
Meigetsu ‘beautiful moon’ apples are as you would imagine big, round and light yellow. They seem to be from Gunma originally and are not usually commercially available according to my favourite source of rare veg info: https://specialtyproduce.com/produce/Meigetsu_Apples_15789.php
The Nagano, naturally taste testers convened and our review is less crisp than a Shinano Gold but still crisper than a Fuji, sweet but not Fuji sweet and very very juicy. Seriously juicy.
They are very big so cut up and share apples rather than throw one in your lunch box size.
These apples are grown Amelia. They are grown using traditional methods so have been sprayed numerous times throughout the year with fungicides and other chemicals. These are not organic in any way. However Amelia’s family does not use hormone sprays nor herbicides (just look at all those weeds around her trees! ) so these apples have lower contact with chemicals than many commercially grown apples.
