Opal Apples at Berkeley Bowl West

  • 1

These had one of the Bowl's "Good Eating!" signs I've learned to heed, and indeed, they're tasty, particularly given that it's so far out of season. Reportedly a cross between Golden Delicious and Topaz (which I've never heard of), they taste like a very ripe Golden but tart and more complex. They're juicy and have a firm, crunchy texture. Conventional, Washington state.

  1. I've heard that they're available the Moraga Safeway - anybody know if there's any place on the Peninsula that carries them?
