so I was eating an apple, Fuji to be exact and I realized that the appple was much harder in texture than the Fuji that I ate yesterday, why is this? Is the apple not as ripe? Needless to say I didnt feel like eating a concrete ball so I threw it out.....that saddens me......poor apple.

nah actually being quite productive today at work, but its a serious question, I mean maybe this is just a stupid question and we learned the answer in 3rd grade, I must have been bored then.

yeah I think the older the apple the softer it gets?? That's my guess.

Fuji Apples rock though! I just tried a Honey Crisp Apple and it is a strong contender against the Fuji. Very good.

oh yes they are really great apples, except for when they are rock hard, lol.

The flesh of most fruits tends to soften when it ages/ripens. I think it has something to do with enzymes converting starch to sugar, which is why ripe fruit is sweeter....I'll "google" it to see what I come up with; you've got me curious too.

You should just switch to Pink Lady apples. They are sweeter cousin of the fuji...awesome.

If the apple is too hard, you could always cut it into slices and slather it with peanut butter. There is no way to not like it covered with peanut butter.

You have to go to the farmer' market or to Target to get the Pink Ladies. Kroger stopped carrying them a few months ago. Very sad...

You should try going to Super H Mart on Pleasant Hill Rd, they usually have the freshest produce for the best prices. That's where I load up on fruit when I'm in town.

Hi gwen,

thanks for the welcome and yes I do know glxtrx unfortunately. He says we are friends but the truth is that I am only friends with him for two reasons:

1) He helps me with my fish tanks.

2) (and most importantly) he makes the greatest queso known to mankind and that is the only thing that keeps me from crying when I watch the Dophins get their butts kicked every Sunday.

Anyway, I am new to the satwater world so I'm looking forward to learning all about it on the site.

As for apples, I made prok chops for dinner tonight that were glazed with a caramelized diced apple sauce.....not to brag or anything, but it was awesome. I think i used washington apples, not softball sized.

cya.
