Hi gang.

            Can anyone recommend a sweet crunchy apple.

In the 60s the family built a house on a derelict Kent orchard, made up of old James Grieves and we kept a couple in the back garden.

They were the crispest, tastiest apples that I have ever tasted.

They seem to have fallen out of favour now, so may be difficult to source.

Plus one . We have a tree in our orchard and it provides us with apples throughout the winter. Excellent choice but Worcester Permain has to be a close second but ours does not produce the quantity that the James Grieve does.

I know that they are very seasonal - and early - but I have always liked Discovery as long as they are just ripe. Used to work on a farm that grew them for M & S but we always had to harvest a tad early when the pips were not fully brown.
