As we're smack in the middle of the apple harvest, we've been trying loads of different varieties to pick the best for our smoothies. We had some from Germany and some from the UK and we've whittled it down to our favourite 11 - there's still a way to go.
Lucy E (far right below), our chief apple taster, says that each variety has really different characteristics. The Bramley is very acidic (makes your mouth water apparently), the Cox is very sweet with hints of nuts and honey and the Russet is "really, really brown in colour, but gosh, it reminds you of an English country garden". Knows her stuff does Lucy.
