National Allotments Week 2019

Our new arrival of fruit trees have tasty crops, but what sets them apart is the stunning colour of the fruits. As well as being suited to allotments and orchards, they’re attractive enough to be worthy of a place in your gardens, plus they’ll make your crops stand out against the plethora of allotment photos being shared as part of #NationalAllotmentsWeek on social media. Here are our favourite colourful fruit trees that have just landed on our website.

Red Williams pears taste similar to the extremely popular ‘Williams Bon Chretien’, but they have dramatic burgundy to red skin. Another richly coloured fruit is Summer Sun cherry, with its sweet tasting, dark red cherries.

Some Crab Apple trees have fruits large enough for making into jellies and chutneys. Jelly King and Fruitilicious are no exception, with the fruits taking on vibrant shades of pink, red, green and yellow, so they are as decorative as they are delicious.
