Arkansas Black Apples

(Apples, Arkansas Black)  Arkansas black apples really aren't black, but rather a very dark red that looks almost black. They are also the most dense apple we have ever tried. They have a crisp sweet-tart taste, but to us, their denseness makes them less desirable as an eating apple; however, Arkansas black apples are great for cooking, because they hold their shape. We found these apples in a farm store, but have never seem them in a supermarket. Arkansas black apples, a variety of winesap, were first produced in Arkansas in 1870. We could not find any specific nutritional information for for Arkansas black apples and have therefore included a composite apple nutritional chart.
