Not impressed

I received some of these as part of a gift box. I can honestly say that, outside of a red delicious, I've never had a blander, more tasteless apple. They were dry, a bit mealy and flavorless. This was my first experience with this type of apple so I had to look it up. I see so many rave reviews; maybe mine just came from a bad batch? I realize that these were sourced from someone other than Frog Hollow, given the season, so they trust someone else but quality control on this particular fruit was not great. I can't imagine I'd try again, and feel bad that my friend spent good money on them. The rest of the box was good (the pears especially were delicious).
