I'm really starting ti get a sense of how many varieties there are out there. It's a bit daunting. I read a bit on the Wittenham Hill Cider Pages, and realised I had NEVER heard of any of the varieties of apple being discussed. Now, that's not to say I probally couldn't find some apples with SIMILAR characteristics in my area, but I can see I have a LOT to learn!
