The fruite of apples do differ in greatness, forme, colour
and taste; some covered with a red skin, others yellowe or green, varying
indefinitely according to the soyle and climate; some very great, some little,
and many of a middle sort; some are sweet or tastie, or something sower; most
be of a middle taste betweene sweete and sower, to which to distinguish I
thinke it impossible…
John Gerarde, 1597
