They’ll get scrumped but they’re ideal for your front garden – and there are 3,000 types to choose from
I have eaten hundreds of apple varieties, yet there are only a handful I can taste from memory, whose flavour I can instantly conjure: Blenheim Orange is one of them.
I loved it from the first bite. It has a plain, sweet taste at first, then a distinct nuttiness appears. As it ages, the texture crumbles to something you’d never find in a supermarket. It’s an addictive apple, made for eating with cheese, but also for cooking, keeping its shape perfectly with those complex nutty flavours rising to the fore.
