    INRIP - I can do Aprimira for you if you like. It is a small sweet yellow plum. It has grown and fruited well with little pest and no disease (touch wood)

    Scions for 2018/19 ?-dscf5439.jpg

    Pic above L to R - Victoria, Opal, Aprimira, Czar

    Lardman - I have been given permission to take scions from a community orchard so am planning a big grafting sesh this year especially as I lost a few in the nursery section. I am the same as you anything interesting. The only named variety I have on my wish list is winston / winter king. Most of my trees are iffy this year all I can offer is Apples - Charles Ross, Worcester Pearmain, Bramley, Sparten. Plum - Aprimira. Pear - Williams. Quince - Vranja. Peach - Avalon. Fig - Brown Turkey, ?Brunswick.

    Norfolk that would be much appreciated, the yellow amongst purple (if I can do my bit correctly) would look great. The two figs would be great too. Can I ask what the other 3 plums in the pic are ?

    I can sort you some out no problem, central leader nice and fat.

    Can I tempt you with some tupstones ? Tupstones - Worcestershire Orchards : Worcestershire Orchards and the super early Dodin Doddin - Worcestershire Orchards : Worcestershire Orchards if you like a green apple taste. If you prefer a more American style I can just about get a scion of my (as yet unconfirmed) sweet 16 https://www.orangepippin.com/apples/sweet-sixteen


    The rest of the usual suspects are:

    Pears
    Beth
    Onward
    Winter Nelis

    Apples
    Pitmaston Pineapple
    Gala
    Orleans Reinnette
    Egremont Russet
    Spartan
    Queen Cox
    King of the Pippins
    Bramley
    Dodin
    Gladstone
    James Grieve
    Tupstones
    Christmas Pippin
    Winston
    Kidds Orange Red

    Being rather slow to realise more than one variety can be on the same tree. I have just worked out after giving the apple tree that came with this house 2 years ago, its first year of TLC, that it is two varieties. Seems to be a good idea as they are slightly different maturity date and add variety to the eating. Probably other benfits like keeping but not got that far yet.
