The most interesting part of the day is the opportunity to view so many different varieties, many of which have a long history. A wonderful website that I have just discovered fro apple varieties is Orange Pippin.
Court of Wick is from Somerset (1790s).
How could I not take a photo of Pig's Nose Pippin? It originated in Herefordshire in the 1880s and is very sweet
Another great name, this apple arose in the 1850s.
Talking of diseases (well in this case a deficiency), there are examples of common apple problems on view.
Not just apples - there's the opportunity to stock up on pumpkins before little darlings start knocking on your door at the end of the month.
