arkansas black

ha's farm arkansas black applesI bought these beautifully dark Arkansas Black apples at the Farmer’s Market today from Ha’s Apple Farm. I absolutely love the deep purplish color. Arkansas Blacks are an heirloom variety with a hard, dense, fine-grained flesh and a sweet, tart flavor. Apparently, they keep extremely well through the winter. Fujis are still my absolute, all-time favorite (and Ha’s has some of the best), but I’m really liking this dark ruby variety. Probably best just for eating and not baking, but that’s fine by me!
