Your orchard varieties
Many varieties of fruit have been lost over the years having no verified records for decades. But sometimes old fruit trees are found to which no one is able to put a name. Clearly some of the lost varieties will be these unidentified varieties but the knowledge gap makes reuniting the two a difficult task. To help secure all our existing varieties PTES keep a register of their location.
If you have a list or plan of an orchard with variety names, please send it in. We’re also interested in historical documents such as estate maps or nursery catalogues so send those in too.
