Does anyone else notice a slight hint of incense when biting into a fresh Granny Smith apple? I only notice it sometimes, not with every Granny Smith. Just an odd thing I noticed, not unpleasant, just odd.
Never noticed that. But note that if you're eating a Granny Smith now it's most probably 9 months old or so. Not the best way to taste a fruit! Try eating some fresh Granny Smith apples this fall and see if they taste different?
Well apples are only in season in the Fall. Then they are waxed, irradiated and whatnot so they can conserve them for months in fridges so you can eat Apples year round, but they're obviously not as good as a fresh apple.
