Apples

Hi,

My 4 year old daughter has announced that she would like us to get an apple tree!  We are keen that she eats more fruit so want to oblige!  It would be nice to get a variety that is from Yorkshire, where we live. We have an allotment so pollination should be ok.

I have done an internet trawl and can only find Yorkshire Greening which is a cooker.  Does anyone know of a Yorkshire eater please?

Thanks

    Apples are only indigenous to central asia, but I know what you mean.  There are lots of varieties that are traditionally grown in Yorkshire.  This is probably just what you are looking for:

    Heh heh - I noticed that one and quite like the idea of growing it myself.  It would be great fun to offer someone an apple and watch their reaction after biting into it and asking what variety it is! image
