This week I've been building a large green oak frame at mum and dads farm so I could use one of their barns to build it in. Everyday I've walked over to the orchard I planted 8 years ago and helped myself to a discovery apple.
Planted 8 years ago at mum and dads
A lot of people slate the discovery apple, but fresh off the tree it takes some beating, espally when there is very little else ripe this early in the season. I think that the reason people have a bad opion of this apple is because it doesn't keep, like all early apples, and so when you buy it in the supermarket it's already on its decline.
It's a good tasting, crisp apple and after 6 months of eating imports or ones that have been in cold storage it make a refreshing change.
What other early apple does everyone else recommend?


  1. We used to have a tree on the path to our barn that Dad called an Early Transparent. It was yellow, crisp, juicy, sweet and early, but it wouldn't keep either.

    1. I'll look out for that one Gorges. I have a Gage call transparent

  2. Apples NOT floating in a bucket at halloween
