Apples; domestic, imported, apple pie . . .

On Wednesday I had got a huge wish for apple pie. We had no apples so I sent Lefa on a mission. There is a garden next to ours where are plenty of apple trees. The owner, an elderly man, does not pick them.  Most of the apples just rotten away.  I told Leif to please, please go pinch some apples. 

Yesterday I made the pie. 

Last time in the shop I noticed the huge difference in domestic apples and imported apples from New Zealand.  Normally I probably wouldn’t even have noticed there are apples from New Zealand.  This time the sign caught my attention immediately because we know a family who recently moved there. Imagine . . . the apples come all the way from New Zealand to Finland.  WOW  !  The most surprising thing is that the New Zealand apples are less than half the price from the domestic ones.

How crazy is that ?

We have more than enough of apples in Finland this time of the year. Most of the apples will rot and get thrown away. Please sell them a bit cheaper. Why not import less apples this time of the year. Import them during the winter.

Just my humble opinion. By the way who am I to know about these things ; )

The apples from New Zealand actually looked more delicious than the domestic ones. I will buy some next time to taste the difference 🙂
