Identify Your Apple & Pear Tree

Do you have an unidentified apple tree?

Apple Tree Identification service from Brogdale resumes mid August. End of Summer/Autumn is the perfect time to seek help in identifying your apple or pear tree.  Many people have apple trees in their garden which may have lost their name tags and their names are forgotten. However, understanding the variety of an apple is incredibly helpful when deciding how to care for your tree.

How Brogdale Collections can help?

For anyone in this situation – Brogdale Collection’s Fruit ID service could be the answer. As home to the National Fruit Collection – the largest collection of temperate fruit in the world including over 2,000 varieties of apple – Brogdale is well placed to carry out fruit identification. 

How does it work?

The service is easy to use.  Customers can book and pay online, or via cheque. Send fruit and shoot samples to Brogdale and our experts will analyse and  email your identification results to you. Results can take a minimum of 8 weeks and may be longer in busy times.  Eminent pomologist Dr Joan Morgan with the help of Jim Arbury from the RHS will endeavour to identify the apple variety.

How much does it cost?

The fee is £30 (per variety identified)
