• People in Helmsley Walled Garden

Apple Day – Saturday 21st October

Do you know that apples float because they are 25% air?  Or that in Ancient Greece tossing an apple to a girl was a proposal of marriage and catching it was a response of ‘yes’? If you want to learn more fascinating
facts about apples then come to the Garden for Apple Day. You’ll be able to:

  • taste some of the unusual apple varieties grown in the Garden
  • sample and buy Helmsley Walled garden’s own apple juices
  • find out about training and pruning apple trees
  • see our apples being turned into juice
  • follow a family friendly apple trail and try bobbing for apples

We have over one hundred apple trees here, including a collection of Yorkshire varieties. So come and celebrate all things apple with us on National Apple Day.

Normal admission charges apply.
