Rowan Jacobsen’s Apples of Uncommon Character has apples, apples and more apples – 123 varieties, in fact. Team member Beth says it feels kind of like a Facebook for fruit: “profile photos taken from the most flattering angle, and a rundown of basic biographical data — origin, appearance, flavor, texture, season, use and region. (Of course, there’s some good gossip, too — like how Golden Delicious ‘sired’ Jonagold, Mutsu, Gala, Pink Lady and many more).”

Other things Beth learned while reading the book: which apple variety inspired Isaac Newton’s theory of gravity, and which one inspired Rambo. Read Beth’s review of the book here.
