Foxton Apple Tree
The following is information sent to us from Rob Croft, Heritage
Seed Library, from a website he found (UKOnLine):
A small cooking apple, a few trees of which are found in the
Leicestershire village of Foxton, of lock fame. The tree is said to propogate easily
from cuttings: quite unusual for an apple. At the time of writing, however, we have
been unable to locate any of the trees. Also known as "Foxton's Favourite".
We have found one reference from the 1990s to this apple, describing
it as a dessert variety, medium sized and crisp. No known trees at time of writing.
Foxton's Red Margaret
Another apple from Foxton: no known trees at time of writing.
If you have any information about these apple trees, please
