Apples

(Malus domestica)

Perhaps the best known fruit for growing in the UK, and benefiting from the ideal mild, moist Atlantic conditions that beset the British Isles; the apple has been cultivated for centuries, with more than 2000 named varieties now being recorded in the National Fruit Collection. Here at RV Roger Ltd. we grow thousands of apple trees each year, of more than 240 different varieties - including a large number of hard to find, regional, or historic varieties, and including a wide range of cultivars (cultivated varieties) for different tastes and purposes: (cooking, eating raw, cider production etc).

The apple tree (Malus domestica, also known as Malus pumila) is a deciduous tree in the rose family best known for its sweet, pomaceous fruit, the apple. It is cultivated worldwide as a fruit tree, and is the most widely grown species in the genus Malus. The tree originated in Central Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today. Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe,and although there is evidence that apples grew wild in Britain in the Neolithic period, it was the Romans who first introduced varieties with sweeter and greater taste. The earliest known mention of apples in England was by King Alfred in about 885 AD in his English translation of Gregory's Pastoral Care"".
