Blackmoor Estate’s famous Apple Tasting Day has been running for 47 years and returns on Sunday 8th October. This hugely popular free local event is in aid of local charities and is a rare opportunity for fruit enthusiasts to taste a wide variety of the old an new apple and pear varieties grown at Blackmoor – from traditional favourites like Cox’s Orange Pippin and Norfolk Royal Russet to exciting new varieties like Opal and Rubens (Note Opal and Rubens trees are not available to purchase). Apple ‘doctors’ will be on hand to identify mystery apples and apple ailments, fruit trees and plants will be available from our nursery, and as usual there will be a range of other attractions including: rural craft fair and demonstratons; community fete; local produce stalls; horse and cart rides; cakes and teas; climbing wall; Morris dancing; and cider of course!
