Since 2012, we have planted a one-acre orchard of local Essex heritage apple varieties for cider and apple juice, which we hope to produce in a few years’ time.
Braintree Seedling (D), Chelmsford Wonder (C), D’Arcy Spice (D), Dr Harvey (C), Francis (D), Montford (C), Nolan Pippin (D) and Ruby Thorrington (D).
C = Culinary. D = Dessert.
All apple varieties are heritage varieties, originating from Essex.
