Ever heard of a Grapple? (No, not for scaling buildings.)
I was walking around a Japanese market/shopping center with my wife last week and we were shocked when we found a plastic container with four apples in it, or so we thought. The label on the container said they were patent pending Grapples (pronounced "grape-puhl"), a cross 'tween grapes and apples. It really shocked the hell out of us when we gave them a wiff because they look exactly like standard old Gala apples, but they smell very strongly like grapes. We didn't buy them because it was like $7 for 4, but I've never even heard of those suckers. I've heard of Broccoflower, but not Grapples. Have you? If you've eaten one, what's it taste like?
