My favourite apple has always been the red delicious.

Fresh. Crisp. Delicious.

I can’t remember the last time I had a good red delicious apple from the grocery store. They are always old and grainy.  Year round. It feels like I’m always waiting for fresh apple season but after 5 years here I realized it never comes.

This morning I was in the corner store, that is actually not on a corner, and saw their fresh fruit so I grabbed a red delicious for $0.69 to have for lunch.

It was the best red delicious apple I’ve had in a LONG time.

So why is it that the corner store, that isn’t actually on the corner, has fresher produce than the grocery store?

This apple rant could quickly turn into a rant against the entire produce department at both of our local grocery stores, because I’ve never seen such rotten produce for sale in my life. Literally rotten.  Very rotten.

And then I could start ranting about how I long for fresh Ontario produce, especially since we were just there and now realize what we’re missing, but I will spare you that rant too.

And I won’t even mention the entire basket of Nova Scotia peaches we’re pitching into the compost.

Instead I’ll just dump the change jar so I can buy another delicious red delicious for $0.69 at that corner store (that isn’t actually on a corner).
