Apple (Dessert) – Golden Russet – Also known as Golden Russet of New York, a much loved and best flavoured American russet. Thought to be a seedling of an English russet. Can be used for eating, cooking and cider making. Was grown commercially in the US, but fell out of favour. But is making a resurgance due to it making an excellent flavoured cider.

Plum – Thames Cross – A very large plum which has a yellow skin and pink patches when ripe. The taste of the fruit is excellent and sweet and juicey with a lovely perfume. It is a strong grower and it is self fertile.
