  • Apple - McIntosh

    29 Sep 2022 
    I live in Folsom Ca. but was born and raised in Endicott NY and Mcintosh apple was my favorite. I just wondered if you knew where I could purchase these apples in the coming months. I found a store Raleys last year and went every other day to buy a dozen until they said no more were available. As you can see I really eat a lot of them & my granddaughter keeps asking when I'm going to buy them this year as she loves them too. Thanks
  • Apple - Worcester Pearmain

    29 Sep 2022 
    I remember as a young kid scrumping these apples from a small orchard just over my back garden wall. I got caught one day by the owner who said I could have all the apples I wanted but only windfalls. I thanked him, (we were polite in those days) and I never did take an apple from the tree again. These apples were call Worcesters he said. I have never tasted an apple so sweet in my life. They taste a bit like a Cox I think. I live on the Romney Marsh, and up until a couple of years ago could buy these lovely tasting apples at a local greengrocer for a short while. Then they were no more, the man who supplied the greengrocer had died. I wish I could buy these apples again somewhere. We tried to store some a few years ago but they did not keep. If any kind person knows where I could buy some of these I would love to know.
  • Apple - Catshead

    25 Sep 2022 
    Found a large old tree near Battisford, Suffolk, with a good crop of fragrant large cookers - identified as Catshead. Took some cuttings and the local plant nursery grew one on, planted in Melton Church in 2014 as the first tree in our Scattered Orchard. This year has a tremendous crop of delicious scented angular fruit. Last year I took a cutting on an apple tree in my garden which has taken so hoping for more in a few years!
  • Apple - Cosmic Crisp

    23 Sep 2022 
    This is an outstanding apple. It's crisp, sweet, juicy and beautiful too
  • Apple - Jonagold

    23 Sep 2022 
    I have eaten a lot of jonagold apples. There has often been brown spots near the core of the apple. The new crop is out now and extremely delicious and reasonably priced!
