Jonathan Apple Review
"An Odd Homeschooled Boy"
This mealy disgrace, named after the boy in your third-grade class who always had dirt on his face, has the consistency of old snow wrapped in electrical tape. The only thing more difficult than getting past the off-putting name of “Jonathan” – a fine name for a boy with a lollipop but not for a fruit – is burrowing through the leathery deep-red skin shrouding its mushy innards. A quite handsome apple with exceptional juiciness, Jonathan once held so much promise, but this early 19th century heirloom is destined to be homeschooled as it is too sensitive (to both disease and bruising) to flourish in a normal setting. The best we can hope for from sweet, little Jonathan is a decent juice or cider, but in all likelihood this apple will slowly fade from our sight and memory only to be loved by its own mother.

Jonathan apples are one of my favorites.
I’m sorry to hear that.
You have insulted my favorite apple.
The sweetness, tartness, spiciness, juiciness, and crispness of a Jonathan make it perfect, the best apple I’ve ever eaten, and I have tried every variety of apple I’ve ever found. They aren’t sold in any store in Dallas as of about 3 years ago. I have to mail order them from Pennsylvania and drive 5 hours to the closest orchard. They don’t hold their texture very long, so the reviewer must not have tried a fresh Jonathan. Move over, horses, I’ll take that apple!
If you haven’t tasted a jonathan apple pie, you don’t know what apple pie is!
I don’t know if it’s a country thing, but that doesn’t look at all like what we call a Jonathan apple, and the profile you’ve given it couldn’t be more wrong. Jonathan apples are some of the crispest I’ve ever tried, and their taste is 2nd to none.
This is what they look like over here
Unfortunately they’ve been taken over by disgusting apples like Pink Lady, where 2 bites and you’re done due to its sickly sweet flavour.
Hmm…I’ll look into this!
