National Apple Day

Baking, picking and bobbing will be the order of the day when a vitamin packed day of fruitful fun hits Warwickshire on Sunday.

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, just imagine what 50 different varieties will do on National Apple Day next Wednesday.

Staff at Ryton Organic Gardens will be out to show lovers of the juicy fruit that there is more at the core of their favourite nibble than just Coxs and Granny Smiths three days before that.  Ryton, along with more than 200 other food centres up and down the country, is joining in the charity-led event.

Visitors to the centre, just off the A45, will be able to taste the different kinds of apple as well as joining in a host of other fun events.  From apple pressing to the Halloween linked activity of bobbing, organisers say there will be something for all the family.

For the connoisseurs, the experts will give advice on apple pressing, juice tasting and how to preserve and dry the nation’s favourite fruit.  Children will be kept amused with competitions while mum and dad can join in a tasting session of some of the 50 odd varieties.

The award-winning restaurant will also be open for business with a full menu of different dishes with – yes, you’ve guessed it – apple in the recipe.

The day, which also includes sessions on organic growing, will run from 10am until 4.30pm with admission for adults 2.50 and children 1.25.

On the edge of the county Sulgrave Manor near Banbury is also joining in the fun on Saturday and Sunday with an apple market and cookery demonstrations.
