  1. I really like your website! It is very informative. We started planting our orchard this year, and I will definitely use your site as a reference when deciding on which trees to add in the future.

    Hi, Found your website and enjoyed flicking through pages – you are obviously passionate about your apples and one thing that comes through is; “to fully enjoy an apple, ensure you eat it prime condition” – I have always said that 95% of apples taken and eaten from the tree in optimum condition deliver a good eat, but only 5% (probably) have the ability to last in the fruit bowl for more than a week, which is why there are so few apples that are successful on a global basis…I will link your website to mine….Take care The English Apple Man
