A tumble of Red Delicious apples from Somewhere, USA, dominates the display at a Vermont supermarket. They’re still America’s #1 apple, with 40% of the market, according to author Rowan Jacobsen, who calls the Red Delicious “a freakish, deep-burgundy molar.” They’ve been bred to be deeper and deeper red, at the cost of flavor. “Remarkably bland,” sniffs Jacobsen. “It is more icon than fruit.” We’ll be out in the orchard here early tomorrow morning in search of stranger fruit.
