October Sensory Exercise – Apples

Yesterday in the lab we were doing some sensory testing on everyone’s favorite fall food – apples! Vincent had visited Poverty Lane orchards in Lebanon, NH. It’s a must visit orchard with hundreds of different heirloom varieties. (http://www.povertylaneorchards.com/)   Below are just a few that he brought back.  Tasters preferred the Hudson Golden Gem and Pitmaston Pineapple for their texture and overall flavor. 

Apples sampled:

Westfield Seek-no-further, Sweet Alford, Nehou, Carl Adams, Yellow Newton Pippin, Greening, Hudson’s Golden Gem, Pitmaston Pineapple
