I bet you think I’m crazy and that apple picking was months ago, but as the trees lose their leaves, suddenly apples seem to appear out of no-where

Ben leaping for apples

This picture was taken November 2009 near Henley on Thames and yesterday I spotted two previously unseen apples trees on my canal-route commute which I have been doing since June.  The first one’s apples overhang a pond – so i can count that as inaccessible, but will keep a close eye on the ‘bank side’ of it next year.

The other however, like the one in the photo, is laden, I was on my way home in a hurry with full panniers, but it certainly bears investigate another day.

The apples in the picture, when reached, were crisp and juicy, looking like Golden Delicious, but actually tatsting delicious!
