Taking us through the seasons in England's apple-growing heartlands, this magical book uncovers the stories and folklore of our most familiar fruit.
'An orchard is not a field. It's not a forest or a copse. It couldn't occur naturally; it's definitely cultivated. But an orchard doesn't override the natural order: it enhances it, dresses it up. It demonstrates that man and nature together can - just occasionally - create something more beautiful and (literally) more fruitful than either could alone. The vivid brightness of the laden trees, studded with jewels, stirs some deep race memory and makes the heart leap. Here is bounty, and excitement.'

Notă biografică

Pete Brown is simultaneously allergic to and obsessed by apples.
He has written several books on food and drink, including Man Walks into a Pub, Three Sheets to the Wind, and Hops and Glory. His discriminating palate has led him to be a judge in the Great Taste Awards and the Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards, and a frequent contributor to Radio 4's Food Programme.

'Wonderful, revelatory ... very moving' Sheila Dillon, BBC Radio 4
'His ability to laugh at himself, openness to wonder and willingness to go wherever the search takes him make Brown an engaging writer ... an entertaining journey' Maria McCann, Mail on Sunday

'Pete Brown has charted the fruit's journey from April's blossoms to October's harvest ... the beliefs of the Celts and Christians, the Romans, the Persians, the Greeks and the way that folklore and fairy tales often have apples at their heart. All this from a snack that's often seen as the least glamorous item in a lunchbox' Rebecca Armstrong, Independent
'There is still time to consider apples and I am thankful to all the thought, detail and stories in The Apple Orchard for making me do so' Rose Prince, Spectator
