We’ll be announcing arrangements for the RHS members’ fruit identification service in summer 2021 to identify your mystery cultivars.

Useful information

Have a go at identifying the fruit yourself using Fruit ID website.

Keen individuals, orchards and nurseries may consider using DNA identification. This is offered by NIAB EMR research institute for apples, pears, strawberries and raspberries from samples of new growth in early summer. Please note: this service can be expensive and would advise discussing the cost first.

I enjoy a refreshing walk… my membership gives me free family days out as often as I like.
