Our apple portfolio consists of a Bramley (for cooking), a Jonagold, and this Reine de Reinette above. Both the Bramley and the R de R are covered in fruit; the Jonagold isn't.
The tree above is in the chicken run, which means I visit it every day; this morning I declared the fruit to be RIPE.
The French compare it favourably with the English Cox, but frankly it's nowhere near as good.
France is not really an apple country, they are far better at producing pears. Pears like the warmth, apples prefer cool.
With all those apples hanging from the tree; I suppose we'd better get eating!
