The RHS hosts special sessions throughout the year where experts are on hand to identify a range of fruit cultivars of apples, pears, plums and many others. This carried out by RHS Horticultural specialist Jim Arbury and at the larger events with assistance from other specialists.

Experts may be able to identify pest and diseases damage too so please bring along three or more fruits of each cultivar. These should be mature typical specimens complete with stalks.
