Derek writes: “Apples, how we love them, their shape, colour, smell, taste & texture, they are good for you too.
I recently visited the National fruit collection at Brogdale near faversham in Kent. A treasure to behold.
Hundreds of different varieties, just like Noah’s Ark, 2 of each. My ear’s pricked up with the following fact.
There are around 7,000 apple varieties world wide, however only 20 are grown commercially.
What about the other 6,980 I hear you ask. We have a small collection of 40 different varieties here at the Nursery. all to be savoured, eaten, and enjoyed.”
