  • 2011

    Spring blossom: 15 April
    Harvest: 2nd week September
    Very dry Spring with several warm days in April, around 20 Centigrade. No high winds since January. Lots of blossom. Starlings didn't leave much for me to enjoy.These apples are generally much less tasty than my Worcester Pearmains.
  • 2010

    Spring blossom: 28 May
    Harvest: 3rd week October
    Was a good crop but heavy winds in mid September looked like destroying much of the fruit. In the end there were many good apples though the acid taste remaimed until late October when the fruit eventually sweetened.

    Poor crop. Small apples and not a good taste. Too many summer gales.
