This week Kay held a tasting at afternoon tea for our Koanga Institute Staff. We compared some of the apples in our collection and learnt a bit about their cultural heritage too and how they came into the Koanga Collection. Next year we’ll incorporate it into some an open day so you call can discover your favorite apple variety before planting your fruit trees.
If you would like to know more about our fruit trees we send out full info on cultivars in our July Catalogue each year. To get the catalogue become a member here: http://buff.ly/23w8Jx7
