The annual tasting of Alaska-grown apples was held at Bradleys in Peters Creek in late September. About 30 people attended, and 23 turned in scoresheets. Bob Boyer contributed three of the top four apples this year: the winner, Ginger Gold, plus runner-up September Ruby and Sunrise. Tom Marshall’s Oriole rounded out the top four. For the second straight year, Bob analyzed each apple for sugar content with a refractometer. There was very little correlation between sugar content and apparent sweetness of the apples.
