The Bb apple throw me off. I did not pay any attention to the other types of apples to see that apples and oranges were being compared. Sorry Good Teaser. I have never heard of the BB apple.

I got it from DELICIOUS and NAVEL and the comparison signs, but I don't think a mandarin is a variety of orange.

Mandarin is a type of orange. In foact It's the variety of orange I know, I don't pay attention to orange names, lol.

I saw apples on 1 side, and oranges on the other, but it didn't click.

A mandarin orange is an orange. A mandarin orange is a tangerine and a tangerine is not an orange. Take your pick. Modern citrus fruits are all crosses of various citrus fruits from 300 years ago. We call some of them oranges, but orange is not a distinct clade within citrus.

A very good rebus; thanks!

I got it, although the phrase I know is 'comparing apples and pears'. I guess that's a little like the 'full of beans' discussion on one of my quizzes.
