Over the season (October-May), we'll bring you scrumptious favourites such as Cox and Royal Gala. Pick up our Red Dessert bag for apples such as Worcester and Early Red Windsor or our Best of British bag for more modern varieties such as Rubens and Cameo.

Don't forget to try our juicy Zari apples, too. This exclusive variety 'has a lovely crisp bite', according to a panel of 12 mumsnet mums who we asked to review the produce.
