Let the RHS Fruit Specialist identify your mystery fruit cultivars
The RHS hosts special sessions throughout the year where an expert will be 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.
Times: 11am–1pm and 2pm–4pm unless otherwise stated.
