The Point Puzzle

The Point Puzzle is a weekly puzzle challenging listeners with word puzzles and logic puzzles. Every week a winner from the last week is selected from emailed answers and announced on air and a new puzzle is posed.

The puzzle airs on KPOV on “The Point” on Wednesday mornings between 9:00 am and 9:30 am and replays at 5pm just before Open Air.

Puzzle 280, week of September 17:
Since it is now apple picking season, we have an apple puzzle this week. Start with a US city over 500,000 in population. Change one letter and you have a popular variety of apple.
