First up was the Arkansas Black. We were not impressed with the watery taste of this apple. It was bland and although the flesh was firm and would probably make a good sauce we decided this tree did not make the list for our fantasy orchard.
Hey, if they can have fantasy football leagues I can have a fantasy orchard. You should see it, it's self-mowing. ;D
The neatest thing about an Arkansas Black apple is the dark red skin. It colours everything a beautiful deep pink-red. Incidentally, the skin is where most of the flavor seemed to be also.
