    Will the Apple Day events include ‘recognition’ – we have moved into our house and have an apple tree – but cannot identify what sort of Apple it is – the apples are medium size, quite tart and green skinned when ripe.

      Hello Ian
      Thank you for your message.
      We don’t make any promises with our ident on Apple Day and I will not give an identity unless I am completely certain I’m right. Please do bring your apples for us to look at. We have over 100 varieties on display for you to compare and i have some really good reference books. We usually enjoy searching together with our visitors; sometimes we’re successful with an ident, sometimes we’re not! We hope to see you on the day. Kind regards, Sally Pyner (Horitcultural Coordinator)
