OMG - apple heaven!

oh yes! that looks good. We've planted a James Grieve tree here that gave a reasonable yield this, its second year. If and when we move on we'll have to leave it as it'll probably be too established to move now, but I don't mind that, I consider it a gift to future inhabitants.

I would love to have the room to plant a few rare varieties. Monoculture, or at least "pauciculture" (i.e. focussing on a few), runs the serious danger of losing us some wonderful apples.

I love all the names-wish I were there to smell and taste them.

Beautiful. I do like apples.

They used to make me ill, but I think that's because I was eating the cores.

Made apple crumble today, with good old British Bramleys.

Fabulous. I also love the names. Get me a 'greasy pippn' and follow it up with a 'captain kidd'. you can do it.

with my current reference book obsession, this makes me want to get a list of apple names. Nice one.

Thanks everyone.

SW, I loved the "Greasy Pippin" name too.

My parents live about 5 miles from there. Didn't go this year though, been in previous years - many apples to taste.
