Page 99 Test

Wergh

"The Page 99 Test is simple: after reading page 99, would you want to turn the page?"

The site takes its name from Ford Madox Ford's observation: "Open the book to page ninety-nine, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you."

From Graham Rice's New Plants Blog: "This variety is so new that you can't even buy it in the supermarket or the greengrocer. It was raised in Switzerland by ace apple breeder Markus Kobelt, who spent many years developing it. It's the first in a series of red-fleshed apples."
