Welcome to the Magical Apple Orchard: One Bushel Per Person

Google Image Search (Royal Gala Apples)

Hello there.  Welcome to the orchard where all of our apples have a little bit of magic in them.  No worms in there either.  We have the same rules as all other orchards where you can eat while gathering.  Best to read the list before you go munching away though because some abilities might make it hard to continue.  Don’t worry though.  We have a resting area over there if you need a break before finishing.  By the way, we don’t have all 7,500 species of apple here, so I hope you don’t mind the limits.  Enjoy.

  • Golden Delicious–  Popular as you would expect.  Covers your body in a thin layer of gold, which dissolves over the course of an hour.
  • Gala– Good source of energy in that you can discharge lightning from your fingers.  Lasts for as long as the apple is in your stomach, but stops after it passes into the small intestine.
  • Enterprise–  Teleports you to a fantasy world where nobody else has visited.  You return after a few hours with whatever you’re holding.  This doesn’t include living things, so no hugging dragons in the hopes of bringing them home.  You’ll just be eaten.
  • Honeycrisp–  Grants an ooze form that smells of honey and is immune to all damage.  It is susceptible to cold and wears off after two hours.  Entire apple must be eaten for full effect.
  • McIntosh– Not that exciting.  Gives you immunity to cold temperatures, so it’s more popular in winter.
  • Fuji–  Shrink whatever you touch into a palm-sized form.  Does not work on living things.  Everything returns to normal after power disappears.
  • Granny Smith–  Increased speed, but only when knitting or making pies.  My grandmother made this one.
  • Liberty–  A medical apple that cures most diseases, but you need to know what you’re curing first.  Requires you write the name of the disease on the apple before ingestion.
  • Breakey–  Grants the ability to spit fiery acid.  Can hurt your throat.
  • Red June–  One of our juiciest apples.  Every bite gives you the ability to read the future using fire.
  • Parry White– This is a white apple that allows you to turn invisible.  Doesn’t affect your clothes.  People always forget that.
  • Croncel–  Increase jumping ability to that of a flea of human size.  Safe landings aren’t guaranteed.
  • York Imperial– Unbreakable equilibrium along with a body that can contort into any shape.  Everything will snap back into place once power disappears.
  • Ambrosia–  Random power once you finish the apple.  We have a list online of possibilities and you can add to it if you get a new one.  Popular with kids even though we don’t recommend it.

    And here I always thought MacIntosh protected you from getting your feet wet in the snow or rain!

    Wow! I learned something about apples! I didn’t know there were so many varieties!
    Maybe the Parry Whites also give you the ability to run a newspaper? 😉 Okay I’ll stop. I’ll take some Granny Smiths since I have knitting needles and patterns.


  3. Great powers in these apples. I know from experience the McIntosh also gives great power to play annoying music with a goat. Fun post, Charles.

  4. I would definitely cultivate an orchard of Liberty Apples, although the true miracle would be the absence of any worms.

  5. This was fun. Maybe I’ll donate a truckload of my crabapples. Give them to your friends then watch the crabbiness from a distance.
