The following is a list of all identified apple trees on the St Anns Allotments site as of January 2010. This list will inevitably change during the 2010 fruiting season as more identifications are made. Identifications have been made with the grateful help and expertise of the Northern Fruit Group, the Marcher Apple Network, and the Fruit Department at the Royal Horticultural Society, Wisley.
