Apples and Pears in the Grange


We had another afternoon of picking today, this time harvesting an amazing variety of apples and pears on Lauder rd. The garden had clearly been planted with some care as there was many different varieties of apples and pears, and an espalier hedge. We managed to identify some of the fruit conference pears, russet and bramley apples, but the others are still a mystery to us.


Our hosts at the Keil centre treated us to tea and helped us to pick the fruit that was ready to fall. After picking the fruit was sorted and put into storage, and there were still enough apples left over for all the volunteers to try some of the different varieties. We hope to have our hands on a fruit press soon, so in the future we’ll be able to make juice on the spot for everyone taking part.
