We had a very well attended variety trial day last week courtesy of Messrs. GH Hoyles at Long Sutton. There were also samples on display from our replica site at EF Harrold’s in Norfolk. The overall quality was very good and there were several varieties which caught the eye. Time will tell when these varieties are taken on into commercial production.
When the season gets going will be sending round our two samplers to members on a daily basis. They will rotate one local day and then one distance day in order to get everybody sampled regularly.
We will be having our first wash up on Wednesday the 11th of September.
