This has gotten interesting. I ate the apple yesterday -- rather dense
in hand, but flesh rather fine and somewhat soft, certainly not
crispy-crunchy, but not soft to bite (like McIntosh) either. Skin
intermediate in thickness, not unpleasant. Complex-sweet flavor, but
not 'fruity.' Is reminiscent of Fuji.

Here are a couple higher-res pictures.
