A bumper apple crop at Croome
8:00am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
THIS year has seen a bumper crop of apples at a National Trust park near Pershore.
Almost seven tonnes of the fruit have been picked at the garden and park at Croome Court, with more still to go.
The apples will be used in recipes in the attraction’s 1940s-style canteen and in cider at the Fleece Inn at Bretforton, near Evesham, which is managed by the Trust.
They can also be bought by visitors for a donation.
Garden and park manager Katherine Alker said: “We are delighted that this year’s bumper crop of apples is being used in such a wide variety of ways. Most of the apples are from local or historic varieties such as Worcester Pearmain, Catshead, Ashmead’s Kernel and Pitmaston Pine Apple.”
