The world famous Borough Market in London is 1000 years old this year. To celebrate, the market’s annual Apple Day had a make-over this year as it transformed its traditional apple display into a shiny, white modern setting – the first ‘real’ apple store. To celebrate the launch of the seasonal harvest and to remind shoppers of its millennium birthday, Borough brought together the biggest ever collection of the England’s favourite fruit in the exhibition of 1000 oldest, rarest and most loved British apple varieties.
The world’s oldest known apple, Court Pendu Plat, which was introduced by the Romans and still flourishes today was on display, along with 999 other varieties.
