Got 0? The Apple and "Improv"

I'm beginning my series of "Got 0?" articles with the versatile apple.

If you love apples, then embarking upon a lifestyle change can be easier and certainly much more satisfying with this 0 points food in your arsenal.

The Apple must surely be a worldwide favorite, given its great number of varieties. If you hang out in the produce aisle of the grocery store, you will notice more space devoted to the apple than any other fruit or vegetable.
Varieties of apples with concise descriptions
While the above list seems fairly comprehensive, I did not see a recent discovery that I made.

About a month ago, an unusual variety called "Jazz" caught my eye. At $2.49 a pound, I wasn't about to fill a bag full of them, but I was game to try one ($1.54!!!).

This variety not only looked different, but it also smelled unlike the other varieties, more like a perfumy honey.

Being an avid Jazz fan, I also loved its name, so I decide to write a haiku about the Jazz Apple, one of the most difficult haiku I have ever written.

While I'm happy with the resulting three lines (17 syllables), I almost like my process of writing it even better, even though it's messy and meandering, much like jazz improvisations, and I'd like to share it with you:
