Cameo chosen as tastiest apple

Cameo apples were voted Tastiest Apple at the National Fruit Show for the second consecutive year. The variety was also judged Best Exhibit based on appearance criteria.

The competition - judged by a panel of six experts who tasted a total of 101 entries for the Tastiest Apple class - is the largest competitive display of commercially grown top fruit staged in the UK.

Grower JN & NJ Bardsley grew the winning Cameo and also won Bayer CropScience's prize for Cox's Orange Pippin. Other growers that excelled include: Highland Court Farm, which won more than a dozen categories including the Ernest White cup for Comice pears; and GW Breach, which won a dozen prizes, including the Cornwallis Cup for Cameo and the Norman Collett prize, also for Cameo.
