  • Apple - George Cave

    01 Aug 2022 
    This is a fantastic good all rounder as it has a good zing that can also make a lovely cooking apple. The apple is small to medium in size and kids love them!!
  • Apple - Grimes Golden

    27 Jul 2022 
    Grimes and Yellow delicious are both good but Grimes is more tart and to me tastes better. We had 110 acres of apple trees when I grew up and some were Grimes. Seems only older people have ever heard of them but not surprised as you never find them in the store and most people don’t grow them. Sad as they really are a great apple.
  • Apple - Fiesta

    19 Jul 2022 
    I bought and planted a fiesta tree this year and so far the apples 🍏 look very green- when can I expect it to turn red?? Or is it a golden delicious I was sold instead?? Newbie gardener!
  • Apple - Smitten

    Absolutely delicious !!
  • Plum - Herman

    06 Jul 2022 
    Precocious and heavy cropper. Excellent flavour. Sweet with some acidity and tannins. More grown-up/interesting flqvour than super market plums. Important to thin otherwise small fruits and less distinct taste.
