December fruit

Left to right: Blushing Golden, Golden Russet, Esopus Spitzenberg
It's December, and time to open up the chest of pirate booty and start eating those keeper apples you put down against the inevitable coming of winter.

I've got a lot to choose from, including (not shown) some Suncrisp , also a few Cox's Orange Pippin, still flavorful though past peak.

In the photo above are Blushing Golden, Golden Russet, and Esopus Spitzenberg.

These are two-star apples, a rating these fruits earn by their quality eaten out of hand and as keepers.
