FOR this weekend inspiration, we travel outside of London to Kent, after spotting these delicious pears and apples at Neal's Yard in Covent Garden.
KENT is the celebrated garden of England and for over 50 years it has also been home to the UK’s National Fruit Collections at Brogdale Farm. Growing on 150 acres of land near Faversham are over 2220 varieties of apples from almost every county in Britain as well as varieties from over the world. Funded by Defra, this extraordinary living collection is made up of two trees per variety essential to preserving the genetic diversity of fruit crops. The collection also includes pears (550 varieties) as well as cherries, plums, quinces, nuts and currants. You can even visit the farm, with its National Apple Festival being held on 17-18 October. You can find out more here.
