I started attending meetings for the Rare Fruit Society of South Australia in July just after our son was born. I've found the meetings to be fascinating. It's amazing to know that there's over 200 varieties of apples alone that can be grown locally. I'm looking forward to implementing my espaliered tree design. The plan is to have each branch with a different variety so we can have fresh fruit coming ready to eat over the longest possible time. My understanding is that apples can be fresh off the tree in Adelaide for ten months of the year.
