about

Apples are in season in the UK from late summer to late Autumn, though available from store or imported all year round (we do not touch air freight).Apples can range from very sweet to decidedly tart, depending on the variety. It's worth trying out different varieties, just to experience the wide range of flavours the humble apple offers. All apples belong in the Rosaceae family, which includes roses, strawberries and apricots, to name a few.Fact of the day... did you know the first colonists to Northern America took apple seeds with them? There you go!

English orchards whenever possible, though will also on occasion use Bristol Markets and EU-derived (land-freight) sources in order to meet times of high demand.
