I find the shape and rustication pattern of this reverse-Calabash apple quite reminiscent of a garden snail; it isn't a huge leap to picture this cutie making its slow way from the shade-to-shade created by overhead foliage. Despite its diminutive length, this "Snapple" (heh) is a joy in the paw, requiring about as much effort as a bent Brandy in order to achieve the perfect grip, combine that with a weight of less than 40 grams, and the fact this is a reverse-Calabash... Ping Zhan has created a breakthrough (and a winner).
