Random news bits from the Royal Horticultural Society
Anyway, as may be apparent to you by now, I'm just sort of posting any vaguely interesting fruit-related news that I've come across in the last few days. The following is an assortment of news from the Royal Horticultural Society (in the U.K...I suppose probably other monarchies have Royal Horticultural Societies as well..).
Two bits of fruit news in there (I can't link specifically to them or I would):
- The Iford Cherry, an obscure Prunus species with an odd sprawling habit, has been rescued from extinction by grafting the last living bit of the only known trees onto sweet cherry stocks.
- Ken Tobutt, from East Malling, has a successful apple/pear hybrid. I know at least one person I correspond with will be excited about that.
