It has been a very good season for apples in my garden this year. I train my fruit trees as espaliers and cordons so do not get vast numbers – which is good – but I do get good plently of good quality fruits, and this year some were very large. As you can see above I collected three of the largest specimens for comparison, the smallest variety being 7cm across, the largest 9cm.
I’m pretty sure about variety A and B, but if C is the variety claimed on the label then it should only be 5 – 6 cm diameter. Or perhaps I have just grown the largest examples known!
So, can you identify the three varieties above?
Answers on a post card please (or perhaps it would be quicker just to leave a comment below?)

No, no, and maybe. But good try!
The first does have Cox as one of its parents.
The second is a modern ‘supermarket’ variety like Gala.
But the third is a mystery to me too. I’m hoping someone can positively identify it!
Just checked back through your apple posts – is the first one a sunset? Also, am sure the last one is a russet, I have come across v. bug russets in the past. Also, talking about the past I am Sophie from Hastings years ago *waves hello*
B. is definitely Fiesta – I’m certain!!
Yes! (They were absolutely huge this season too – far bigger than supermarket ones.)
