  • Apple - Orkney

    10 Feb 2020 
    I am teaching grafting this week on Orkney isles and collecting scions as part of it, along with trying to start the mapping of fruit in Orkney. Someone here says they have an Orkney Apple which they got from Kent (so maybe Keepers) and just wondering if there is any update on this variety please
  • Apple - Pixie Crunch

    02 Feb 2020 
    Pixie Crunch is one of my new favorites. It has a unique crisp breaking, crunchy texture unlike any other apple I have tried, and the flavor is very good and sweet. This was the first year my tree produced and it set a heavy crop despite a late frost that reduced the production of many other varieties I grow. I will look forward to this apple year after year.
