Reviews

"[Jacobsen] covers 123 varieties (a small sample of the thousands grown worldwide) with a photo of each. He's an excellent guide, giving taste, texture, cooking and storage profiles." --Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

"Apples of Uncommon Character pays tribute to some of North America's finest and most obscure specimens, reviving the lost art of apple appreciation in the process." --Salon
