It's about £15 to put an advert in the Hereford Times. I reckon I'll do it.
I'll also get in touch with Helen at the 3CCPA and see if either she's got any ideas, or she can put the word out, or put a request in their newsletter (which might go out too infrequently to be of any use to us, but I'll find out).
They're (very likely to be) either eating or cooking apples your Ladyship.
You can make cider with them (like they do in Kent and Sussex, for instance), but the resulting cider will be (to my tramp's palate) a bit insipid and lack the "vintage" taste of cider made with proper cider apples (that are generally only grown in the West).
But at this rate we'll be scrumping the tree down Falmouth Road and not be fussy at all what type of apple it is.
Yes, I thought her price sounded high. She was very knowledgeable, though - started asking me all sorts of questions about varieties and mentioned words like "sharps" and "bittersweet". Ah well, it was worth a try!
