Everyone knows that apples are good for you. One of the great things about apples, besides their great taste, is that you can get them pretty much year round. There are usually many apples to choose from in the produce section, with each one having its own unique characteristics. You now have two more great apples to add to the list of choices; Lady Alice and Junami.
The Lady Alice apple is a Washington State original that has a nice sweet flavor with a bit of tartness. While I haven’t tested this yet – they are suppose to be slow to brown after cut. I really liked this apple – it was firm and had a great flavor to it. It would be great in salads, including one of my favorites, waldorf salad. The season for the Lady Alice apple is February through April so you should be able to find them soon – try either Kroger or Meijer.
The Junami apple is a HELLO! kind of apple – it’s flavor is big and so is the crunch. I really liked this apple, especially for snacking. This variety of apples come fromSwitzerland and is a cross between Ida Red and Maigold with Elstar, combining the best qualities of both. The season for this apple is January/February so you may still be able to find these at your local Kroger.
Both of these wonderful apples come from the Rainier Fruit Company. You can find more information on the Rainier Fruit website, including some yummy recipes and the locations that carry the apples by clicking here.
Disclosure: I received a free sample of these apples to facility the review. All opinions are honest and my own.
