Assistant managing director Stephanie Dunn James said: "Tickled Pink is the sweetest red-fleshed apple on the market. It's mid-season and a good keeper, as well as being eye-catching. A couple of growers are putting it in this year."
Meanwhile, a Canadian-bred variety so far known as FM503 "is quite exciting from the culinary and processing point of view as they don't really need any preservatives to stop them going brown once they have been cut open."
"They are still at the trialling stage with this but an orchard is also likely to go in this year," she explained.
While the Worcestershire nursery is best-known as a supplier to the amateur market, "we are also putting together an offer that is more appealing to the commercial grower", she added.
