Update on Dalemain: last week I said two entrants to the marmalade festival one bronze and gold in the Seville oranges category using Eva’s organic oranges (actually Ave Maria organic oranges from Seville) – well we heard later that another customer won the silver too! Congratulations to Sue, Pamela and Karen. More information and some nice recipes on the Ave Maria website: www.huertaavemaria.com/ingles/inicio.html
Something interesting in the orchard: We have eight varieties of apples but one has always been more prone to apple scab than all the others. So this year we enlisted the help of Niall Wildewoode who re-grafted the poor variety’s rootstocks with scions from Red Topaz trees – one of the best we have. This is a clever way of replacing poor varieties without losing the trees all together. Niall can do this kind of work for you if you have a variety of apple that is disappointing.
