Apple Wars: Gala

The Gala is an apple on the smaller side of medium with red and yellow striations. There is a faint apple smell to the skin which is slightly more intense for the flesh. The first bite was slightly crisp but the texture of the flesh was a little mealy. This would likely increase as the apple continued to ripen making this an apple best eaten quickly. The flesh is sweet and mellow while the skin is thin enough to barely be noticed.

Crispness: 4/10
Sweetness: 7/10
Tartness: 1/5 {reverse scored}
Skin Thickness: 1/5 {reverse scored}
Appleyness: 3/5

Apple Wars: Swee Tango

The Swee Tango is a red apple with yellow highlights which has little green-yellow speckles that sort of makes it look like it could be poisonous. There is no scent of apples to the skin and only the slightest hint to the flesh. The apple is crisp and initially tart with the sweetness coming forward over time. The skin is thick enough to be noticeable but doesn't too severely detract from the apple.

Crispness: 8/10
