Karen from Shropshire contacted us requesting details of traditional apple varieties for the region.
Her school is taking part in the Learning Through Landscapes “Fruit-full Schools” project.
They are planning to establish a community orchard in the school grounds and would like to be able to grow old local varieties.
If anybody can help with information about varieties of apples that have traditionally been grown in shropshire, then please contact us via the comments section at the end of this post and we will forward the details.
