The Red Delicious apple probably exceeds other kinds for its very high content of anti-oxidants, flavonid & procyanidins due to its red color & extra thick skin. can you chew 10 times on this tough American apple?

Calville Blanc is high in vitamin C! wonder if there ever was a study performed about nutrients in apples?

Lawrence D. Hills, doyen of organic gardening and founder of the Henry Doubleday Research Association, in his book 'Grow Your Own Fruit and Vegetables' (1971), gives a list of mainly British apples ordered by vit. C content in mgs per 100 gms. 'Ribston Pippin' heads the list at 30.00, and 'Calville Blanc' isn't on the list, but he admits it's not a complete list - I think it's varieties popular in the UK. He mentions another list of mainly Continental varieties, which was topped by 'Calville Blanche d'Hiver', which I think is the same variety as 'Calville Blanc', which has 31.80 mgs vit. C per 100 gms, so it does indeed just beat 'Ribston'. 'James Grieve' is rather low, at 6.80, but I still love it! 'Bramley's Seedling' is middling, at 16.00, but I'd guess that some vitamin C would be lost in cooking.
