Blackmoor Apple Tasting 9th October 2016
The 46th Blackmoor Apple Tasting day was well attended as ever with the fine weather contributing to a lovely relaxed atmosphere. This year’s favourite apples were Early/Red Windsor and the newer varieties: Opal and Rubens. Our apple identification expert was kept very busy and managed to identify over 100 garden apples brought in by visitors. The total figure raised by the charities again came to over £10,000 - a great achievement. Many thanks to all our helpers and see you at the 47th Blackmoor Apple Tasting on Sunday 8th October 2017.
