|The Young Trees|
It's apple and pear picking time in the college orchard. Many of the apple trees are laden with fruit although the pear trees are quite sparse.
|Apple, Variety 'Orleans Reinette'|
The young trees have benefited from the removal of some of the fruitlets that took place in early July, see blog entry 6th July 'Fruit Thinning', which has resulted in many good sized apples.
|The Fruit Picking Team|
By the end of the day 19 trays had been filled ready to be taken to Waterperry to be pressed. The picking will continue over the next few days.
