Cider apples

These are looking good in the garden at the moment; the Sops in Wine and the Yarlington Mill are both cider appples, the latter being a very local bittersweet variety. The large red crab apples are Wisley, the size of a good cooking apple, with pink flesh most of the way through. The John Downie's fruits are some of the most stunning in the apple world, for shape and colour.

When we first arrived in Canada I looked everwhere for cooking apples only to find that they do not have them here. Baked apples are very titchy compared to British ones and tend to collapse in the oven, so you end up with a stewed apple in a blob with bits of skin!
