I'd check out some other sellers too, Deacon's don't have a huge choice. Blackmoors, Adams Apple Trees, Keepers, Reads, Parker's, if you saw BBC Countryfile last week Matt Baker was tasting a Redlove apple from Lubera (also available from Blackmoors). I ordered it from Blackmoors immediately for fear of it selling out but then remembered that Lubera did four apples called Redlove, so which was it? It took me a week to track that down with the kind help from Francijn Suermondt from Lubera and Ross Newham at East Malling. Ross kindly tracked down the clone number, he could only remember the row it was from, then Fran was able to confirm that clone 119/06 was Odysso. I ordered it today after Matt Baker's reaction to it describing it as a cherry crossed with an apple, I thought it was so worth a try. Can't wait for it fruit now.
