Opalescent

Peter's Favourites are

Golden Delicious I eat one every day for its medicinal properties (cholesterol), sweetness and long keepin

Mutsu  (Crispin) Big green Japanese apple very sweet - so big you need a knife to eat it

Sturmer Pippin An allrounder, late pick (June/July in Australia), flavour best weeks after picking, high in vitamin C, keeps well, popular in Tasmania for Cider.

Voted favourite at the Petty's Orchard annual tastings

Opalescent (2007 and 2008) Australia's hot summer suits this variety to produce a sweet apple with crisp texture - not so in England, originated USA.

Kidds Orange Red (2009 and 2010) originated in New Zealand - a cross between Delicious and Cox's Orange Pippin - has a pleasant spicy flavour.
