Arkcharm Evaluation

Arkcharm is good here.  I let this one get a little past prime to where it was turning mealy, but the flavors were still there; a nice tart-sweet balance with “appley” overtones.  I bet it would make killer pies; in fact, it reminds me a lot of Anna, only two months later.  It withstood our brutal August heat and quite a bit of humidity this year, and colored up nicely despite warm nights in the 70’s.  The size was pretty good too, and I’d like to try it dehydrated, as that would probably bring out a lot of flavor.  It’s not going to replace anything we currently have, but is a nice addition to our lineup that fills in a hole between Hawaii and Bramley, the next to ripen.
