Re: ‘“The apples are bigger, but they don’t taste quite as much like apples”’ (Metro, Sept. 12)
The reason the larger engineered apples don’t have that much flavor is the molecular structure is stretched to accommodate the growth hormone effect on the apple.
The apple can only produce the amount of flavor that nature allows. Ever notice that smaller organic tomatoes have much more flavor? That’s why.
