    This very short work by Thoreau is sheer poetry to read He explores the role of wild apples within history and culture, often citing the classics It s highly readableso than many 19th century works and a pure sensory delight Honestly, it made me hungry for apples The out door air and exercise which the walker gets give a different tone to his palate, and he craves a fruit which the sedentary would call harsh and crabbed They must be eaten in the fields, when your system is all aglow This very short work by Thoreau is sheer poetry to read He explores the role of wild apples within history and culture, often citing the classics It s highly readableso than many 19th century works and a pure sensory delight Honestly, it made me hungry for apples The out door air and exercise which the walker gets give a different tone to his palate, and he craves a fruit which the sedentary would call harsh and crabbed They must be eaten in the fields, when your system is all aglow with exercise, when the frosty weather nips your fingers, the wind rattles the bare boughs Almost all wild apples are handsome They cannot be too gnarly and crabbed and rusty to look at The gnarliest will have some redeeming traits even to the eye This book is available for free, legal download online

    Feeling strongly enough about something like apples to write an entire essay about them boggles my mind This was delightful, though Some Favorite Quotes There is thus about all natural products a certain volatile and ethereal quality which represents their highest value, and which cannot be vulgarized, or bought and sold.Nay, they spring up wild and bear well there in the midst of pines, birches, maples, and oaks I am often surprised to see rising amid these trees the rounded tops of apple Feeling strongly enough about something like apples to write an entire essay about them boggles my mind This was delightful, though Some Favorite Quotes There is thus about all natural products a certain volatile and ethereal quality which represents their highest value, and which cannot be vulgarized, or bought and sold.Nay, they spring up wild and bear well there in the midst of pines, birches, maples, and oaks I am often surprised to see rising amid these trees the rounded tops of apple trees glowing with red or yellow fruit, in harmony with the autumnal tints of the forest.I know of no trees which havedifficulties to contend with, and whichsturdily resist their foes These are the ones whose story we have to tell.So are human beings, referred to the highest standard, the celestial fruit which they suggest and aspire to bear, browsed on by fate and only the most persistent and strongest genius defends itself and prevails, sends a tender scion upward at last, and drops its perfect fruit on the ungrateful earth.deserted now by the owner, who has not faith enough to look under their boughs.Indeed, I have no faith in the selected lists of pomological gentlemen.The Saunter er s Apple not even the saunterer can eat in the house The palate rejects it there, as it does haws and acorns, and demands a tamed one for there you miss the November air, which is the sauce it is to be eaten with.These apples have hung in the wind and frost and rain till they have absorbed the qualities of the weather or season, and thus are highly seasoned, and they pierce and sting and permeate us with their spirit They must be eaten in season, accordingly, that is, out of doors.

    Henry David wrote this at the end of his short life because he mentions the year 1861 as the first time he saw crab apple He extols apples the noblest of fruits particularly wild apples over the cultivated We have the History of the Apples, The Wild Apple, The Crab, How the Wild Apple Grows, The Fruit, and Its Flavor, Their Beauty, The Naming of Them, The Last Gleaning, The Frozen Thawed Apple.Thoreau goes to great length to describe the benefits There is thus about all natural products Henry David wrote this at the end of his short life because he mentions the year 1861 as the first time he saw crab apple He extols apples the noblest of fruits particularly wild apples over the cultivated We have the History of the Apples, The Wild Apple, The Crab, How the Wild Apple Grows, The Fruit, and Its Flavor, Their Beauty, The Naming of Them, The Last Gleaning, The Frozen Thawed Apple.Thoreau goes to great length to describe the benefits There is thus about all natural products a certain volatile and ethereal quality which represents their highest values, and which cannot be vulgarized, or bought and sold No mortal has ever enjoyed the perfect flavor of any fruit, and only the godlike among men begin to taste its ambrosial qualities For nectar and ambrosia are only those fine flavors of every earthly fruit which our coarse palates fail to perceive, just as we occupy the heaven of the gods without knowing it To appreciate the wild and sharp flavors of these October fruits, it is necessary that you be breathing the sharp October or November airThey must be eaten in the fields, when your system is all aglow with exercise, when the frosty weather nips your fingers, the wind rattles the bare boughs or rustles the few remaining leaves, and the jay is heard screaming around
