Rosette Apple

The Rosette Apple – A beautiful early season apple

Rosette is a bright red early season apple, with an amazing rosette-like pattern of marbled pink or red flesh that is revealed when you cut the apple open!

The flesh does not brown (oxidise) that quickly either so it can be used to add an interesting colour to savoury or fruit salads. It was a good choice of apple tree and although only in its third year has a good crop in 2018.

Loganberries

Planted last year, 2017, this is the first year (2018) for picking our loganberries.

They look like raspberries but the fruit is a little longer and firmer. The loganberry is a raspberry x blackberry hybrid with quite a tart flavour which is ideal for cooking or jam.

The fruit is a sharper than a raspberry but makes delicious jam which sets in minutes.

A jug full of loganberries can be turned into three of these lovely jars of jam!
