Fresh Picked Shell of Alabama

Fresh Picked Shell of Alabama

Picked the first ripe Shell of Alabama apple May 21st. Just a hint of starch still, but enough sugar to eat the whole thing and enough acid to keep things interesting and leave an “appley” aftertaste on your tongue. Not one drop off the tree yet, despite the heat wave last week. It seems to be much more sun-resistant than Dorsett Golden.
