Wrinkled winter apple

Wrinkled winter apple.
Organic, scenty, fully ripened,
gentle on the tooth and honeysweet,
but nobody wants you.
People don’t try senior apples.
All they know are glossy new Pink Ladies,
pricey, crunchy, vaguely fructosed.
You’re in the bargain box,
the ‘cooking-apple’ box,
good value.
