Apples, Pears and Figs on Canterbury Street

On my search for the last black berries, I went via Histon Road recreation ground. Unfortunately I was too late. None left but ending at the other side of the park found a lovely apple tree at 69 Canterbury street. It is a rented house and the tenant was happy for me to pick the apples. They are difficult to identify,  Pressing them made a lovely fresh juice. No need to mix with other apples.

The pears and figs in the garden are not quite ready yet. Will check next week.

  1. Any thoughts on the quince tree by storey's way/huntingdon road? A good place for berries is the Niab farm if they have not cut them down or the small orchard attached to Girton's playground. I have my own but only got some good ones as the best ones are when I am away... Maybe you can water my garden next year and pick some!
