Re: [nafex] Sweetest Apple
One of the sweetest juice I have measured was from Rubinette apples:
density of 1.070. Some crabs are also very sweet but, since they are also
very acid, we don't feel the sweetness. Here, Liberty tested average-high -
about the same as Cortland, Empire, Akane and Lobo: density between 1.055
and 1.060. Other higher density juices I have tested came from Honeygold
(1.062 - 1.066), Golden Russet (1.064 - 1.068) and Ribston Pippin (1.063).
I also agree that commercially grown apples of the same variety has a lot
less sugar than home grown.
