Koru (Plumac) Apple Review
"The Middle of the Pack"
Barely Worth It
The Koru Apple (brand name of the Plumac Apple) is the definition of middling. Peacefully existing at the precise midpoint of the apple-quality spectrum, this New Zealand born chance seedling is the superior apple’s ambassador to shit. Discovered in a grower’s rose garden in the exact spot where his mother-in-law tossed a batch of rotten apples, the Koru’s origin is symbolic of its quality: one part rose, one part rotted trash. In an ironic twist, the slogan of the Koru is “Escape Ordinary” which should be read less like a superlative and more like this passable fruit’s aspirational desire.

This is one of my favorite apples- BUT- I only see available it in my region (great lakes area) once every 5 years or so, along with Snow Sweet. I assume the reason this apple only graces this apple-bombarded area twice a decade or so is because most years it’s simply not worth it. It’s always a fantastically complex sweet/tart apple with good balanced density and thin skin when I find it, but I’d be unsurprised to learn this review is what it’s like, the rest of the time.
Not good. I wasn’t even interested in finishing it. Composted.
SUSAN YOU HAVE TERRIBLE TASTE
Can’t believe how low this Apple is on the charts! At least a 80!
