The apple harvest is getting started at Longmeadow, and in this video clip from Gardeners’ World, Monty Don introduces some of the traditional varieties in his orchard, including ‘Jupiter’, ‘Reverend W Wilks’, ‘Herefordshire Beefing’ and ‘Arthur Turner’, and looks at why the size of each tree’s crop varies so widely. To celebrate his first harvest of the year, Monty puts his culinary skills to the test and shows you how to bake the fruit on an open fire as well as in the oven.
