So, I posted this as a photo-reply to your Washington Apple chart, but not really sure how that works so here it is again. It hangs in a store near me that is highly apple-themed but also has a lot of other great produce and deli treats. I may be inventing things in my head, but I think they can swap out different varieties on this chart because I’m sure I’ve seen Granny Smith on it before.
Interesting to contrast the ratings on this one with the Washinton one, too. Perhaps some of the apple varieties have different qualities in New England, or opinions on what makes for a good “pie” or “salad” apple differ? Also on this chart almost all varieties max out the “eating” index, which may mean that the maker really likes eating apples and just does not give a shit which kind they are. Idareds must suck to get fewer dots than Red Delicious.
BTW I bought half a dozen McIntosh because they are indeed good for eating.
Some penguins are able to expel their poop with such great pressure that it lands far away from their nest, thus keeping their homes tidy. Scientists calculated the pressure that penguins would need to send their poop flying a given distance, and this chart outlines the parameters they used in their model.
