one thing useful about that travel partner - he's a fruit freak. he knows all the names of fruits, and he knows which fruits produced where are yummy and which are not.
on the way to mount hakodate, we popped by a supermarket and bought this delicious and affordable apple! look at the size (compared to my mouth!)
this babe's from 青森県, and the apple's called 世界一. it was juicy, crunchy, sweet all at the same time! it didnt have the powdery taste that you get in a china apple.
for a non-fruit person, i actually enjoyed the apple!
