Honey Crisp Apples, the Farmers Market and Minnesota
I did not realize that picking apples for a client last Saturday at the local farmers market could be counted as dealing with sexy things.
That is until my friends at Coudal pointed to One Sexy Apple in the Chicago Tribune.
That sexy apple is not an I Pod.
The juicy story is all about Honey Crisp Apples which came to life according to the Chicago Tribune piece thanks to Jim Luby, professor of horticulture, and his colleague, research scientist David Bedford at the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station, one of the "Big Three" in apple breeding.The other two are at Cornell University and Washington State University.
