Blossom Trail

The Far Orchard, home of Green Horse and other perry pears, several sweet cider varieties, and the Kingston Black trees which are having an 'off' year after last years bumper crop
These three Yarlington Mill trees had an 'off' year in 2010, but are covered in blossom this year. The logs and stump to the left are the remains of the huge, dead, and highly unsafe perry pear tree which John has now removed

Heavy fruit-set on this unknown variety of Perry Pear

The huge Malvern Hills Perry Pear trees in the Top Orchard. We're expecting a better than average crop of Malvern Hills pears this year

There is a reasonable fruit-set on the Green Horse Perry Pear tree this year. This variety seems to be a good annual cropper, it hasn't let us down yet...

Beautiful Yarlington Mill blossom. Plenty of bees about too

The Dabinett trees are small, but this one should carry a very heavy crop
