My stored Ribston Pippin ran out before Christmas so I’ve been casting round for good British preferably organic apples. Sainsburys have quite a range nowadays although the organic is limited. Their Coxes were quite good although not really like a true Cox but an apple called Benoni (I think) was a bit insipid.
I tried my local shop, Half Moon Wholefoods near the bus station in Huddersfield, a few weeks ago and have been eating interesting organic British varieties ever since. Ashmead’s Kernel were excellent although I wasn’t so keen on Red Devil. I’m currently eating Court Pendu Flat a brilliant old variety.
What apples are you eating and where do you get them from?
I forgot to mention that we’re stiil using Crawley Beauty from store. They were billed as dual purpose but they are a bit thick skinned and tasteless for eating although decent cookers. The family say similar things about me.
