Apples To Oranges: How They Really Stack Up

  • TASTE
    Apples run the gamut, from sweet to sour, juicy to grainy... there's an apple to fit any palate.
    Sweet, juicy and citric are the things that come to mind for pretty much all oranges.
  • VARIETIES
    "MacIntosh," "Granny Smith," "Macoun"... there's some fun names for types of apples. And literally naming a variety "Delicious" takes guts.
    "Navel" and "Blood" aren't the most appetizing names for something to eat.
  • KNOWN FOR GROWING IN...
    Rustic New England orchards.
    Groves in sunny Florida!
  • SEASON
    Nothing says apples like a breezy Fall day. On the downside you may need a jacket.
    Summer is warm and sunny, the perfect time to enjoy an orange. But that humidity...
  • HOW TO EAT IT
    Cut it in slices, or just eat it from your hand.
    Peel it and eat the individual bite-size wedges.
  • JUICE
    Very sweet and refreshing, but also kind of kid-centric.
    OJ is an absolute staple when it comes to breakfast foods.
  • COLOR
    Red, Green, Gold.. or anywhere in between.
    Um... Orange. Kind of repetitive.
  • DESSERTS
    Apple pie is as classic as it comes when dessert is concerned.
    Two words: Orange Julius
  • FAMOUS EXTRAPOLATIONS
    An awesome computer company.
    A big-time college Football game.
  • PHRASES
    "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Words to live by.
    "Rhymes with orange" is a pretty passive aggressive sort of dismissal.
  • LEFTOVERS
    A core is compact, but it gets gross if you don't throw it away quickly.
    A rind can go down the garbage disposal to freshen up the kitchen.
RESULTS
It was a close race, but in the end apples take home the gold by our count. There's certainly countless more ways the two fruits can be compared but more than anything we set out to disprove the tired, old saying... and we did just that!
