The Garden of Eden (alternative ending)

    Newer Older

    Had the 'Knobby Russet' been the fruity temptation on offer at the garden of Eden I think mankind have been safe and sound by now. This is a wonderful 'lost' variety of apple. But even though I am a lover of old varieties and delicious russets in particular you can understand why nobody wants to find it again...

    For six word story.

      Wow, that is a highly unattractive fruit.

      My dear Potato, when you consider that these were probably prize specimens one hardly likes to consider what the rejects looked like.

      Alas I have none to give but I might try to beg some in October!

      But the apples that look the ugliest so often taste the sweetest.

      meme - I find your confidence inspiring if not totally convincing! I will be returning to the Apple Fair in Autumn and if there are any to try you can rest assured that I will try them...

      jim - That was a sterling effort!
