How do I like these apples?

I like them quite a lot, thank you. In fact, they're pretty great! Ever since my esteemed colleague over at Killa Blog introduced me to Jazz apples almost a year ago, I've kept a close eye on the produce section at my local grocer. This past weekend a new challenger appeared.

Pink Lady apple

It seems Australia, ever the bitter rival of New Zealand, is not content to let those lousy Kiwis dominate the world of boutique apple varietals. The Pink Lady is a bit more tart than the Jazz apple, but very very tasty. She'll be appearing in my own lunch bag at least until plums and nectarines are in season.
