Arkansas Black

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.

  1. Fantasy gardens and orchards are sometimes the best kind! Interesting to hear about this apple...I've seen it in catalogs and wondered about it.


My dear, few, readers you inspire me to keep writing. Thank you.
