I have been getting a lot of apples in my fruit and vegetable box recently, not that I’m complaining. It appears it’s down to a bumper apple crop this year which is a result of the warm string and the summer rain. In fact the apple crop is up 10% on last year. An amazing 8,000 tonnes of Braeburns are due to arrive in supermarkets this week, with around 45,000 tonnes of Cox’s also due to go sale. I quite like apples so am looking forward to happily munching my way through a few of them.
