next time you are at the market keep an eye out for these apples. It is something of a challenge to buy fruit that we are so used to seeing one way "perfect" and then realizing what it takes to make them that way and how they look in their natural state.
No matter how you look at it pesticides are not anyones friends and if we can get over wanting apples to look a certain way and instead focus on flavor and health we will be better off.
I spoke to the farmer I bought these from and asked if they were a hard sell. She just shrugged and said: Yeah some people don't like the way they look and go somewhere else.
At least now we have a choice.
