Supermarket apple on the left. Home grown Elstar on the right. No brainer, grow from home.

And the taste will be sooo much better, all I can taste in shop bought is water, and the smell, you can't smell a shop bought apple, and the satisfaction of picking your own grown and eating it , unbeatable 😊❤💚

Wow that's quite a difference. Bet the one you grew yourself has much better flavour and is so much juicier!

Indeed, tastes better. And the left one wasn't even one of those mini lunch box ones you can buy for the kids. @richard.spicer.7906 @gjones @suerichards @brightcolours @katgreen

#blossom #apple Elstar blossom looking like water lilies on a pond. Bought in Lidls two years ago. Very fruity flavor, like the old tutti fruti sweets.
