I don't have a garden for trees, but a friend has an apple tree. This year it is absolutely groaning with fruit, but she tells me that the fruit is not good, because it gets "worms" - they are not ripe yet, but I did pick one and nibbled it, and despite its unripeness, it seemed to me like it had potential (some people are very fussy about fruit - I even eat cherries that have worms, I just open them first!!! ;D).
Now, I know nowt about apples, before coming to this country I had never seen an apple tree! Are all apples edible? Are some just nasty to eat? could these be cooking apples? cider apples?
The apples are quite small, the ones that are starting to ripen are red streaked and I would say they will have a yellowish-green background to them.
Basically I don't want her to throw them all out if there is a chance of using them in some way! To me, all apples must be edible but maybe I am wrong. Any thoughts? I should have taken a photo...
