It seemed like the season was short (at least here in northern California), the prices are all over the place, from $2.99 to 8.99/pound, but the bottom line is that they all seem indifferent. They don't have any crunch, and they don't have much flavor. I've tried the farmer's markets and all the reliably good grocers around here. Mostly I've tried bings, which I like, but I've also tried Raniers, not my favorites, but I just keep hoping. Is it just me?
