Ever since i moved out of North London i started to rent apartments so i never had a Garden since. My place in up North used to have a huge apple tree and a another tall pear tree! The pears were very juicy and the apples were rather sour so we often picked them to bake apple pie. Oh how i miss those days of my childhood.
Luckily though, this time staying my my sisters, she happened to have a garden and even an apple tree! I asked her house mates if they have ever tried them and only one of them said she tried them while the rest were a bit worried they may have a stomach ache afterwards. I on the other hand am not afraid at all! Sharon came round and we ended up going out to the garden to pick some apples. Rather childish, but it was a lot of fun.
The apples were a lot smaller than the ones from my old Home so i was afraid it might be even more sour. After they have been washed we took our bite.
It was so juicy and sweet and awfully refreshing! I really don't know how long it's been since i have ate an apple without chopping or slicing it up. I'm not one of those people who enjoy holding a huge apple and just biting through it. Maybe because my mouth isn't that huge and i always think it will force my teeth "outwards" if you get what i mean. LOL! But they, these apples were rather small. I liked it. :)
Did you know, The largest apple ever picked weighed four pounds, one ounce. Discovered in Hirosaki City, Japan!
