Above are just some of the varieties of apples that Chris has collected on our various forays into the countryside. He has been studying his books to try to identify them all, but this has proved to be quite a challenge, as there isn't a definitive guide with photographs of all the many hundreds of varieties, as far as we know. There are lots of books with beautiful botanical paintings of apples, but it isn't quite the same as seeing a photograph. Still, whatever variety they are, the greens, browns, reds, yellows and orange colours make a lovely picture.
