More Apples

My favourite food in the whole wide world ever, is apples. When I moved to London I quickly discovered that fruit in London is nothing like it is here. Take for example, mangoes. In Australia, mangoes are bright orange and smell like heaven and sunshine and their juices drip down your chin and between your fingers. In London they're dull and dry. But apples, apples in London are crisp and cold and crunchy and there are so many varieties. It was there that I discovered Braeburns. Still my favourite followed by Pink Lady, Fuji, Royal Gala then Delicious. I grew up on Red Delicious and I loved them then. I'd have one every night after dinner for as long as I can remember. Now I have one everyday at 4pm, I crave one. In our household (no matter who I'm living with) when it comes to chatting about what to add to the shopping list, I always remember with surprise " Do you know what we need?"
"What?"
"More apples".
