apples in february


Here we are, at the end of February, and we still have apples in store from the autumn.

Red Falstaff is a reliable variety, maturing later than most other varieties.

Of course, it can be eaten straight from the tree, but its special quality is as a 'keeper'. It can be stored from September/October until February or March.

Ours may not last much longer - because we've nearly eaten them all! This one was for breakfast today.

But eating our own, organic apples from late summer until March is something special. I'm forgetting the credit crunch and enjoying quite a different crunch!
