Disease-re­sis­tant ap­ples and pears

Amateur Gardening - - Ask Anne! -

■ ‘Ash­mead’s Ker­nel’. This late dessert va­ri­ety also stores well.

■ ‘Beauty of Bath’. A sweet, early eat­ing dessert va­ri­ety.

■ ‘Gre­nadier’. My friend’s favourite cooker. Ripens early-mid sea­son.

■ ‘King of the Pip­pins’ Of French ori­gin, ripen­ing in late au­tumn.

■ Of pears, our ‘Doyenne du Comice’ is of­ten badly scab-af­fected. But ‘Buerre Hardy’ or ‘Con­corde’ (right) are much bet­ter.
