    Default English apples

    Hi

    I bought 3 different varieties of English apples, from Morrisons.
    I have not seen English apples in recent months. Will these apples be from last summer, I didnt know they stored them so long.

    Many thanks..T

    They will be this years crop, some varieties will not be ready to eat until the new year but you are not likely to see those in the shops.

    I may be wrong here, but I think the main cropping period for apples is September-October and November!

    English apples.........yum!

    We've got a couple of Worcester Permain trees apples are ready any time from late August to September/October. Lovely apples but they don't keep to well.
