Lovely, there was a wonderful selection of apples from gardens (including ours) in the village where I grew up. I hope that some might still be there. So different to modern supermarket ones and such a range of smell, texture and acidity.

I grew up in an orchard (literally our new house was built in a corner of an old one)

We had no idea what most of the apples were and they got thinned out as the trees got older and uglier and less productive but my dad planted some more including what was supposed to be a Ribston pippin but we weren’t sure it was true to type, it was a lovely dual purpose apple anyway. I think we grew it because of the Hilaire Belloc verse

I said to Heart, How goes it?
Heart replied: Right as a Ribstone Pippin!
But it lied
