News From The Orchards - May 2022
Saturday was another perfect Spring day and perfect to see how the blossom of the first, early cider apples is coming on. Frederick and Foxwhelp blossom was in bloom. These two cider apple varieties are essential when making a blended cider as they add the crisp aroma and taste of fruity apples. Also out was the Court Royal blossom. This variety makes a delicious, unique tasting single variety cider with a delicate taste. It was lovely to see the contrasting blue of bluebells in the orchard.
