Crisp Apples Should Not Have To Mean Apple Crisp

Can someone please let me in on the secret of choosing non-mushy apples? Anyone?

My latest apple-purchase found me with 2 crispers and 3 mushers. I'm choking the last one down as we speak.

Please, your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

  3. It's the way they smell. And the dots on the skin. If they have dots that look like they've been there a while, put them down. Close together dots are better than farther apart dots, too. Sometimes I'll even forego the organic if the sprayed pass the smell and dot test.

  6. It all depends on the way they sound when you hit them. Grab an apple and tap it firmly with your thumb or finger. It should kinda sound crisp and thumpy.
