After a spring when the weather was good enough for flowers to be pollinated and then a long hot Summer the trees have a glut of fruit.
We have more apples than we can ever eat or even store. There is a crop of crabapples and the various sorbus species are covered in berries.
The ornamental crab apple has beautiful small fruit. The tree is young and this is the finest display we have had from it. The older crab apple, variety hornet, has big fruit.
Apples are ready to pick and in recent gales my partner has collected baskets full of fruit that have fallen each morning.
Two Himalayan species of Sorbus (mountain ash) The UK species has red berries.
