Do you have apples trees but don’t know what they are?

Many people with an apple tree in their garden come to Apple Days wanting to know what variety their apple is.  (Note: Caley Apple Days are held in conjunction with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh at the beginning of October) .

At this time of year many apple trees are in full bloom.  If you wish to know the variety of apple, remember identification could be helped by a picture of the blossom.  So why not take a photograph now and when/if you bring the apple to Apple Day bring the picutre with you, it might help identifiecation.

To give you a clue as to how different blooms can be here are some recent photos taken at the Community Orchard in Dunkeld.
