Modi Apple Review

"The Italian Disgrace"

Modi Apple

This Italian disgrace, named after famed artist Amedeo Modigliani, is a flavorless lump whose taste is indiscernible from a paper napkin spit on by a donkey. Only those familiar with Modigliani’s work – so, no one – can fully appreciate the appropriateness of this apple’s name. His paintings of distorted, mirthless faces both resemble the warped contours of this knobbly crank as well as the dissatisfied facial expressions of those unfortunate enough to choke down a fruit destined to be forgotten by history. Bonus points for being bred with greenhouse gas emissions in mind.

  1. The review was rubbish, Modi apples are full of flavour sweet and a pleasure to eat. Shame they aren’t available all year.

  2. I agree with the first comment. Rubbish review. Modis are not perfect but can be very good at optimum ripeness. Crisp and juicy. Subtly perfumed. A wonderful refreshing change when your supermarket usually only sells Pink Lady (overrated) and Gala.

  3. In truth these apples were named after the Prime Minister of India. They are firm and attractive on the outside, but ultimately corrupt to the core.

  4. I just ate my first Modi and declared it the best apple I’d ever had—sweet with a little tartness and super crisp. Decided to Google it and found your review. Proceeded to read your reviews of my other favorites (Opal, Autumn Glory, Cosmic Crisp, Ambrosia, and my *safe choice* Fuji ) Hilarious

  5. I couldn’t disagree with your review more. I found Modi apples in California for the first time ever and love them. They’re very crisp with a little bit of sweetness and I’ve already blown through a couple of bags of these gems. By the way, I don’t think much of your uninformed review of Modigliani either!

  6. The review is rubbish. The taste rating doesn’t reflect actual fresh product, at all.

    Rather like a more crips Jonathon.

    Good eating

  7. Had one from Coles Australia and agree that these are nice. They remind me of a softer version of a granny smith mixed with a rokit….

  8. I thought I’d give Modi apples a try since they were on sale at $.79 a pound. Mine were crisp, sweet and tasty. Don’t take the word of a comedian. Try them yourself.

  9. “Opinions are like assholes… everyone has one.” Modis are the best apple we’ve ever eaten and we’re finding they’re delicious to cook with as well. Come visit us… we’d like to change your mind. 🙂

  10. Taste is so subjective. I just ate a Modi and it was delicious. If you don’t like them don’t eat them. Move on.

      1. I just had my first “modi” apple – I loved it. It tasted really good. Great balance between sweet and tart. Looked good too. And again TASTY. Which is rather rare. Too many apples in the supermarket look like apples – but are totally flavorless. And they have become very expensive too. My modis were on sale now I am going to rush back to the store to buy some more. But they are so good that I won’t mind paying the full price. Sorry to hear that they are only seasonal. Oh well…
