Apple Day 2014 – 21 October

Apple Day 2014

Apple day 2014 on 21 October is all about celebrating the common apple and the many different varieties there are in the UK.  I for one enjoy an apple at lunchtime but I wouldn’t say I was loyal to any one particular type – they all taste great to me!  To me, that is one of the great things about apples in that you can try all sorts of different varieties when you go shopping. Apple Day 2014 involves hundreds of events being held across the UK – the first Apple Day event was held in 1990 in the old apple market in Covent Garden, London.  In my home town of Wymondham in Norfolk, there will be an ‘Apple Fest’ where visitors to the farmers market will find a choice of English apple varieties and apple themed products.  Apple Day has played a part in raising awareness of the importance of orchards.
