This is a charming book that takes its reader from knowing nothing about apples except how to eat them to being an aficionado with strong opinions and interests. Dozens of beautiful watercolors reveal the remarkable and unusual diversity of the apple. This book is for people who like to taste subtle things like wine, for people who enjoy understanding the world around them better, and for people who want to know the truth about why their apples from the supermarket taste so mushy.
