NYC Greenmarket Apple Census Shows Four New Varieties, Including Two Heirlooms
Last year, we conducted our first annual Big Apple Apple Census, in which we discovered and cataloged 30 varieties of apples in area greenmarkets, and provided a handy alphabetized list that included tasting notes. Well, it's that time of the year and we're at it again, and following are the four new varieties to add to the list, making a total of 34 apples commonly available locally. Take a big crisp bite!
MARGIL: This rare heirloom dates to the 1700s, when it was the result of a cross between Jonathan and Macoun. It has creamy yellow flesh and the exterior is cosmetically challenged in a charming sort of way.
