Do you recognize her?

Though I am not a fan, I could not resist buying one of these organic Chilean Red Delicious (!) apples just so you could see what she looks like.

Lopsided, flamboyant, even a little scarred, this Delicious has slipped through the bars of her shiny red cage to show a glimpse of her origins as heirloom Hawkeye.

(As usual, click on the photo for a close-up.)

Sad to report, though, that this reversion is only skin deep. To be sure, this is a "good" Red Delicious inside, not mealy as they all so often can be, but the taste and texture were just as generic and unmemorable as those of the glossy red variety.
