The Butternuts are now all indoors. Not quite the crop I was expecting, but it'll see us through to Spring. I have 21 fruits of various sizes.
This, surely, must be the world's very best Pear. The Doyenne de Comice is sweet and juicy and delicious. If you have a spare corner somewhere, I recommend you plant one. A good Pear is a real pleasure to eat, but so often overlooked in favour of Apples..
This extremely red baby is a Reine de Reinette apple. Also known as the 'King of Pippins', it is often compared favourably to the Cox's Orange Pippin. Let me tell you now that it does NOT compare; it's a good apple but the Cox is far superior.
As with all fruits etc, it's sensible to have a selection of varieties. My very young Conference Pear was good this year, and my recently planted Jonagold apple produced just 3 edible fruits.
It's been a decent fruit growing year, other than for my Bramleys, which were HOPELESS. Lots of Plums in the freezer, and we shall be eating Figs for quite a while yet.
