Kinsei Apple, from Aomori prefecture

I bought one apple for $2.68. Let's see how it fares against French Juliet, which is incredibly cheap where I live.
I washed it, and lightly patted the apple, I immediately knew the apple was airy. It was like patting a drum. Very strange.

    I was right. The apple was overly airy.
    It was like biting into wet styrofoam, or room temp shaved ice. No crunch, 1 crispiness out of 10.
    Taste wise, very, VERY mild, it's like 3-5% sugar content, almost no sourness. Little aroma.
    I rate it 4/10. Disappointing, but not inedible.

      That's how the Japs like it. They're weird like that. They hate flavor.

        Maybe you are right, and I wish I had a refractometer to accurately report the sugar content.

      Bleh that sucks, I think the acceptable response from the seller is seppuku (or a refund).

      This is the 3rd time I've bought produce from Japan. And never once have I been impressed.
      2 apples, from the same prefecture (Aomori), 1 Kinsei, 1 Fuji, and 1 Mikan from Kyushu (worst offender).

      Let me elaborate further on the topic of "Crunch and Crisp" for apple.
      Picrel.
      My Juliet apple, from my fridge, a very excellent combination of crunch and crisp, below average "airiness". If you bite into the Juliet apple with your upper incisor teeth, chunks are easily broken from the apple.
      For the Kinsei, it's the polar opposite. My teeth sunk into its flesh, and due to the softness (no crunch/very little crisp), the texture is a bit powdery, like digging through soft snow with your hands.
      If the aroma of the Juliet apple is a 10/10, then the Kinsei gets.. 2/10.. really sad, but that's just how it tasted to me.
      The Juliet's sweetness, with some tart to balance it out, increases your appetite. The Kinsei will kill your appetite. So you see, if you want to cut some weight, eat a Kinsei!

        It just sounds old/poorly transported. Probably it got too cold.

          Well for the price they should have transported it better, then.
          Frick it, tomorrow I might try again at a different vendor and see how it goes, heard this place also have some different apple varieties from Nipland

            They have a bubble wrapped square watermelon there too. Worth the price, no, it's a novelty. It may be again disappointing when you go to a different vendor, just saying.

      Personally I really like fujis, stuff like honeycrisps are too tart for my taste. What apples do you like then?

        Frog's Organic Juliet apples. Medium-Small size, mostly sweet and little tart to balance, good aroma.

        Try their frickass expensive grapes

        Shine Muscat?
        I've only had the ones from Korea, but the price was definitely worth it. Big grapes, vibrant chartreuse.
        The grapes simply "pop" when you bite into them. Thick skin, but not astringent, and very sweet.

      You do know that fuji apples sold in Europe do not literally come from Japan. They're grown in a much warmer country that brings out more flavour etc. in the apple.

    Aren't most apples kind of terrible after having travelled half way across the world? I think you should go over there and eat one right off the tree, OP.

      The Rockit Apples imported from New Zealand taste excellent here. Same for Ambrosia, so I doubt it was the transportation.

      >Fuji

      I bought the Fuji apple with an Aomori stamp on it. Same for the Kinsei and the Mikan. It says something like Zen-noh Kinsei, I forget.

        Addendum: I have never tried Ambrosia, but I have a pack of 6 in my fridge, I'm about to eat 1 right now. Let's see if this lives up to its fame.

    That was way too good. What the fricking frick?
    The texture when you bite into it is as crunchy as Juliet, but when you chew it, it's softer. Sweeter than Juliet, less tart. But a bit less apple flavour.
    In terms of texture:
    Ambrosia >> Juliet = Rockit >>>>>>>>> Fuji > Kinsei
    In terms of taste and aroma:
    Juliet > Ambrosia > Rockit >>>>>>>>>> Kinsei > Fuji

      Why isn't that the case for stuff from New Zealand (Rockit) or A FRICKING LEAF (Ambrosia) or Frog (Juliet)?
      Unless you mean, the Juliet, Ambrosia, and Rockit, when consumed in their native countries, are even better than what I've had so far?

        Yes, it always is. You are only getting pale imitations with all your fruit and produce. Doesnt mean that JAPAN FRUIT BEST, but yeah, if youve travelled at least some you'll know most of your produce has to be picked too early and matured en route and so on, so its never as good as fresh.

    My family owns orchards of different types of apples and nothing beats a crisp, actual export quality Red Delicious. The usual problem is that internal markets in most places that produce them tend to offload shitty produce, and even most supermarkets dont get the premium stuff

      I think I hate Red Delicious.
      For me it's the classic GRANNY FRICKING SMITH. That old b***h makes some good ass apples.
      I also like Pink Lady. Really I just like tart ones.

    Never heard of a Kinsei apple, but it looks very similar to a Nashi pear, which is the most delicious, succulent fruit I've ever had the pleasure of trying.

      That's just pears in general. Never heard anyone calling them Nashi pear (or Chinese pear). Delicious, juicy, and sweet.

    Went to a michelin starred place that served japanese stuff. The food was okay but expensive, but the one thing that stood out was their """premium""" melon ordered directly from japan was completely unripe. Completely ruined that dish for me and it's basically the one dish from that place I still have a distinct memory of. The sad part is they even kept the carboard box display of the melon on display for some reason.
