  • Apple - Fiesta

    10 Aug 2022 
    I have a very small tree and it’s only four years old. I moved it from a pot to the ground last year resulting in a very small crop of apples. Despite the weather and very little rain I have well over 30 apples, of a good size. I see it is low growing resulting in heavy branches bending right over. My solution was an upside down obelisk which supports the branches well. A wonder tasting apple.
  • Apple - Freyberg

    Very enjoyable apple to eat. Juicy, sweetish subtle complex richness. Must be properly tree ripend. Reliable and precious. Highly recommend. My Favourite Kidd creation. better than Gala or golden delicious.
  • Apple - George Cave

    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

    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!
