New Zealand has the best-tasting apples I’ve ever eaten! Seriously.
It’s sweeter than the Fiju and the Washington apples! I don’t know why they don’t export them. That would be cool so I can eat them even if I’m not there anymore xD
Originally, we made a stop-over at this small market/farm-like place to check out their raspberries because they had a huge 3D red cherry-looking raspberry in front of their store. And of course to use their toilets since we were driving for countless hours already.
Then we saw their apple farm. When we were about to leave, the owner told us we can pick as many apples as we want!!! That was sooo cool of her! But we only picked 1 each because it’s so embarrassing if we were just gonna hog all their apples haha!
And so here’s a photo of my head and arm picking an apple. My face looked awkward because it was too sunny. Forgive my cropping.
Their apples are so cute. They’re also sweeter than the ones sold in their supermarket.
And I also bought a recipe book, mostly about jams, sweets & vegetables. For the jam recipes, it requires fruits that are not even available here where I live but I still bought it for the “just-in-case” purposes haha xD
So yeah, when you go to New Zealand do NOT forget to visit Otago and look for this little farm store with a huge huge farm behind it ;) It’s just along the highway anyway so I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to find it. Plus, they have massive pumpkins on a cart in front of their store so make sure you won’t miss it out! :)
