Rubens Apple has taken top spot in the National Fruit Show 2015 “Tastiest Apple’ competition. A panel of apple lovers chomped their way through nearly 100 entries to find that perfect taste.
The entry from J & B Darbyshire, Chapel Grange Farm, Five Oak Green impressed the judges, the winning apple also won best in Class 6. Brian Tompsett who stewards the competition said “it is very rare for an apple to gain the highest points in the competition judging and also win on flavour”.
Cameo took second place with an apple grown by Newmafruit Farms which also took the coveted NFU Best in Show with a huge score of 99/100. Third place was won by another Rubens grown by R & D Applegrowers.
Well done Rubens.
