Mealy Braeburn apple
I brushed against the tree and knocked off a nice-sized apple. It had only a few red speckles but I thought I'd taste it anyway (the first off this 2-yearold tree).
Well, it definitely wasn't green. Had a mild flavor and little of the sharpness I enjoy in grocery store Braeburns. And it was mealy.
I'm in central California and this apple shouldn't have been ready for several months.
Why do apples gt mealy?
